Delicious...I microwaved the pepperoni on paper towels which took out most of the grease.
If I make this again I would leave out the pepperoni. The grease was so intense that it gave us all bad stomachaches. The flavor was good...but it wasn't worth it.
As with any recipe I always adapt it to my taste. So this is what I did that made it delicious. I used cube steak. I sauteed my onion and bell pepper (threw in some fresh chopped garlic) in a pan before putting it in the crock pot. Cut my cube steak in strips. Threw all that in the crock pot with the onion and bell peppers on the bottom. Garlic salt, garlic powder, onion powder, a little seasoned salt, seasoned pepper. I cooked it over night on low. Got me some fresh sub bread, toasted it with butter in the oven for a few minutes. Took it out mustard, Swiss cheese, throw on the meat. Close it up, touch of butter on the top. Throw it back in the oven for a minutes or so. Eat and enjoy! I know this isn't low carb. But I didn't realize this was suppose to be a low carb recipe. LOL! But it was gooooood and a real good treat!
I made this recipe as written but when I tried it after 5 hours of slow cooking, I felt it needed more flavour. I added 1 cup of pureed tomatoes, 1 small clove of garlic, 1 tsp Italian herbs and then thickened it up with a few tbsps of tomato paste. Then I cooked it for the final hour and added the cheese right before serving. DH and I have been eating low carb for about 6 months now and it is great to have new recipes. Thanks for sharing this.
My son is on a low- carb & this was perfect for him. I did leave out the pepperoni & mushrooms. He served it on a low-carb tortilla shell.
I made this yesterday without the pepperoni (just personal preference) and it was fantastic! I used some random cheap cut of beef (it was in my freezer and I hadn't labeled it, oops) sliced into really thin slices against the grain. So easy and tasty!
This is just terrific, and perfect for my low carb diet that Ive been recently following. Tasty, and so nice to have a low carb dinner that the WHOLE family loves. Thakns Chia! :)
I used flank steak, green and red pepper, sliced onions, a sprinkle of garlic, topped with provolone. Served it on toasted ciabatta rolls. Delish! Thanks for posting!
January 15, 2009: Very good. I used cube steak (it was on sale). Very tender and juicy. Thanks for the recipe, it's a keeper. UPDATE November 10, 2009: Made this again for a Photo Forum casserole challenge. I used half chip steak and half cube steak to see which one I preferred. Both were good. I also used turkey pepperoni to cut down on the fat slightly.
This was very easy to throw together. i doubled the recipe and omitted the pepperoni and provolone. we enjoyed it on rolls topped with swiss and cheddar cheese and toasted.
