Round steak turns into fork-tender pepper steak when allowed to simmer long and slowly in the gentle heat of a slow cooker

This is my go-to pepper steak recipe. My only alterations are to double the amt of ground ginger (or grate in some fresh ginger) and I use beef broth instead of water to add more beefy flavor. Depending on how much "sauce" is there, I sometimes increase the amt of beef broth (and corn starch if necessary) to get plenty of that great sauce to go over rice.
