There are a few ways to tell:

1.  If you're starting from an article database, there is often a "peer-reviewed" check box that limits your results only to those that are reviewed by scholarly peers.

2. The web page of the journal often provides information about the journal's aims and scope, as well as information for prospective authors.  Each of these are good places to learn more about how a particular journal handles the peer review process.  If no mention is made of this process, it's a safe bet that the journal is not peer-reviewed.
