Slow Cooker Pepper Steak


Slow Cooker Pepper Steak

You know I love my slow cooker. Having a variety of recipes for it that are fairly simple and tasty are a life saver for a busy family. I found this recipe for  Slow Cooker Pepper Steak on Recipe.com (click for link to original recipe).

You know I encourage you to make a recipe your own and that is what I did for with this recipe.

Verdict:

My family thought this was a great recipe.  Check the saltiness for your family.  I use a low sodium soy sauce and I was really worried about it being too salty for my family but it came out perfectly.  I served over long grain rice cooked with beef stock and my kids ate it all up so there was nothing left for lunch the next day.

Ingredients:

  • 3 tsp. Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 1/2   pounds boneless beef steak (mine was frozen so I cut into thick slices before putting it in the slow cooker)
  • 1  medium onion, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1   clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 packet Lipton Beefy Onion Soup Mix
  • 3   tablespoons soy sauce (I use Low Sodium)
  • 2  tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 2   medium bell peppers any color, cut into 3/4-inch strips
  • 6  cups cooked rice or noodles
  • crispy chow mein noodles for garnish, if desired

    Directions:

    1.     In 3- to 4-quart slow cooker, layer beef, onions and garlic.  In small bowl, mix soup mix, black pepper and soy sauce; pour over beef.
    2.    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7 to 9 hours or until beef is tender.
    3.    In small bowl, mix cornstarch and water; gradually stir into beef mixture.  Stir in bell peppers.  Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until slightly thickened. Cover; cook about 5 minutes longer until peppers are cooked through.  Serve over rice or noodles.

  4. I like that you cook home-cooked meals for your family almost every night when you can. I try to do that too if at all possible, but seriously don’t have the time to blog about it, lol! You’ve been a great inspiration to me, though!

      I am actually considering buying a new one. Mine hasn’t broken yet but I use it so much I am thinking I need an upgrade!

      1. I like the ones that are manual, not digital. Less opportunity for breaking.
