Preheat broiler. Place steak on rack set in broiler pan. Brush top side with the 1 Tbs. soy sauce. Season with black pepper; set aside.
In a small saucepan, stir together the red pepper, oil and garlic powder. Heat on medium for 1 minute. Add peanut butter, rice wine vinegar and the 1 tsp. soy sauce with 1/2 C. water. Cook until smooth, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes. Keep sauce warm.
