Recipe by Mrs. Christmas
I have no idea where this recipe came from, since I've been using it for years. My picky husband won't eat it, so I only make it a few times a year when I cook at my parents. Browning the meat adds flavor and helps seal in the juices, but if you're short on time, you can skip the browning step. I serve this dish with steamed sugar snap peas and rice. (Stir fry sauce can usually be found in the International:asian section of the grocery store.)
- 3 lbs boneless beef roast
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pepper
- 3⁄4 cup stir-fry sauce
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 2 teaspoons gingerroot, grated (or 1 tsp ground ginger)
- 1 (1 lb) bag frozen peppers and onions, thawed
Directions See How It's Made
- Spray 12 inch non stick skillet with cooking spray. If beef roast comes in netting or is tied, do not remove. Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper.
- Cook beef in skillet over medium-high heat for 5-6 minutes, turning once, until brown on both sides.
- Spray a 5-6 quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place beef in cooker (if necessary, cut beef in half to fit in cooker). Mix stir-fry sauce, ketchup, vinegar, and ginger in small bowl; pour over beef.
- Cover and cook on Low heat setting 8-9 hours.
- Place beef on platter; cover to keep warm. Add the thawed peppers and onions to mixture in cooker. Increase heat setting to High. Cover and cook 15-20 minutes or until peppers are tender. Remove netting or strings from beef if necessary. Serve pepper mixture with beef.
