Crock Pot Pepper Steak

"This is a easy to prepare, flavorful and very tender pepper steak. Serve over rice or egg noodles. If you like your green pepper crisp, add to crock pot the last couple hours of cooking time. This is an adapted recipe from Allrecipes."

    Can you use chuck shoulder steak?

    Oh Bev, I was surprised how delicious this was ~ DD even had 2nds, and she is picky-picky. But she (and we) loved the tender flavorful beef, and the seasoning level was just right and served it over wild and brown rice. Thanks for a new recipe for the keeper cookbook. Made for Potluck Tag, Jan 2009.

    This is a wonderful meal for a weeknight or anytime. I cooked it overnight, refrigerated and then reheated. It was served for a small gathering of friends and everyone really enjoyed. The bouillon added enough sodium for my taste so I omitted the additional salt. There was no need to add additional cornstarch as the broth was thick and rich. This will be a repeat.

    Very happy with the results of this slow cooker meal. I browned the beef with sliced garlic and added it into the pot, otherwise made exactly as written; the beef was very tender and the sauce delicious!

    This was surprisingly tasty! With such few ingredients I was amazed at the outcome. Steak was nice and tender and actually reminded me of something my mom through together as a kid. OMG, brought back wonderful memories. I think Mom called it "Swiss Bliss"... It is delish. Thanks for sharing a great crockpot recipe. I will definitely make this again. Was wonderful. ~V
