Recipe Update: Slow cooker pepper steak

Slow cooker Pepper Steak


* 2 pounds beef sirloin, cut into 2 inch strips
* garlic powder to taste
* 3 tablespoons vegetable oil-- I used EVOO
* 1 cube beef bouillon
* 1/4 cup hot water
* 1 tablespoon cornstarch
* 1/2 cup chopped onion--- no onions
* 2 large green bell peppers, roughly chopped
* 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes, with liquid
* 3 tablespoons soy sauce--- only a splash or two
* 1 teaspoon white sugar
* 1 teaspoon salt--- left out


1. Sprinkle strips of sirloin with garlic powder to taste. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the vegetable oil and brown the seasoned beef strips. Transfer to a slow cooker.
2. Mix bouillon cube with hot water until dissolved, then mix in cornstarch until dissolved. Pour into the slow cooker with meat. Stir in onion, green peppers, stewed tomatoes, soy sauce, sugar, and salt.
3. Cover, and cook on High for 3 to 4 hours, or on Low for 6 to 8 hours.

Now I should mention that I chopped up all my peppers and set them to the side for later so they didn't get mushy.. well I forgot them completely. However, it was good without them. I served them up with buttered egg noodles. My SO who doesn't like stewed tomatoes liked it, I used petit ones. I'll make this again sometime but probably with a cheaper cut of meat.
