Pour the whole peppercorns into a mortar and crush into a coarse powder with the pestle. Make sure the peppercorns are lightly ground, but don't leave any whole peppercorns.
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl. Save in the refrigerator until needed, or place sliced beef in with the pepper sauce as a marinade for a couple of hours before cooking. When making peppered beef, pour the sauce into a hot wok with the beef and fry on one side until brown, then flip. Add in bell pepper, onion and garlic. Fry the vegetables until onions are cooked through.
