    Evev though my 11-year old, picked out all the veggies, everybody in my family loved this! Didn't have any water chestnuts, so I added 2 cups of sliced crimini (brown) mushrooms in the last minute of sautéing the bell peppers and onions.

    I tried this receipe today and it is really good, it is as close to restaurant taste as I have ever tasted. I added a little brown sugar to the sauce and it was delicious, my husband kept telling me how good it was. Thank you

    Excellent! This was a restaurant quality dish. Very easy directions and perfect mixture of flavors. I used red, yellow and green peppers that went beautifully atop a bed of brown rice. Thanks Audrey!

    This was an easy and good recipe for pepper steak. I did sub the steak with veggie steak. I liked the water chesnuts, it give the dish an extra crunch. The sauce was good and very easy to make. I will make this again and also recommend it. I think this is also a good beginner's recipe. It was easy to follow and came out just as I imagined it to.Thanks

I am a mother of three and live in central Pennsylvania. My children were very active in after school activities and found we weren't spending anytime together at meal time. In 1998, I decided to start cooking my dinners in a crockpot so that we could have a home cooked meal together once everyone came home. My children now get so excited to see what we are having to eat and love the smell when they walk in the door. My family calls me the crock pot queen. LOL I use my crock pot everyday of the year. <br> <br>My three children are now in college and before they come home they request their favorite meal. I still continue to cook in the crock pot for my husband and I. It is nice after a long day to know your meal is ready. It also helps in keeping my grocery bill down. With zaar, I can print my shopping list and that is all I purchase is the ingredients on that list. <br> <br>Now, my two daughters have been crock pot cooking while in college. They find it is easy to cook for the themselves and their friends. It is an easy way to have friends over for dinner after classes <br> <br>I still love trying new recipes and purchasing cookbooks, especially crock pot cookbooks. <br> <br>Happy Cooking!
