Slow Cooker Pepper Steak

This is another gem from Six Sisters' Stuff. A couple weeks ago I found beef stew meat on manager's special at my local grocery store so I bought it and stuck in the freezer. Right after that, I got green bell peppers from Bountiful Baskets. When I saw this recipe it was a perfect fit! It's been so hot outside lately that using a slow cooker was a welcome idea.

Slow Cooker Pepper Steak

from Six Sisters' Stuff

2 lbs. beef stew meat or beef sirloin, cut into 2-inch strips
garlic powder to taste
1 cube beef bouillon
1/4 c. hot water
1 Tbs. cornstarch
1/2 c. onion, sliced
1 (14.5 oz.) can stewed or diced tomatoes
1 Tbs. soy sauce
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 green bell pepper, sliced
1 red bell pepper, sliced

Spray slow cooker with cooking spray. Place beef in pot and sprinkle with garlic powder. Mix bouillon cube with hot water until dissolved, then mix in cornstarch until dissolved. Pour over meat. Add onion, tomatoes, soy sauce, sugar, and salt. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours or on high 3-4 hours. When there is 30 minutes of cooking time, add in bell peppers and turn on high.

If you want, you can pour the drippings into a saucepan, add 1-2 Tbs. of cornstarch dissolved in cold water, and bring to a boil. It will thicken up the sauce to a gravy-like consistency. Then you can pour it over the steak and rice.
