My family of five likes to eat beef, so this recipe is a favorite. I usually serve it with homemade bread or rolls to soak up the tasty gravy. —Vicki Tormaschy, Dickinson, North Dakota

"This was a relatively simple meal and it was pretty good. I used stew meat and seasoned it a little bit while browning. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes so it is hard to find things to eat. I have basically lived on peanut butter toast, grilled cheese and eggs. I needed a change and since hubby works out of town this will make me supper for a whole week. I paired it with some mashed potatoes and corn. I haven't checked my blood sugar yet after having this so we will see. This will be my rating for taste and ease of prep. I will rate again in about two hours after I test my blood sugar."

"This was horribly bland, even after I added cumin, garlic and smoked paprika. Wrong type of meat for a crockpot recipe."

"This was a waste of a good sirloin steak. It is more suited to a tougher cut of meat. Cooking on high for 3-4 hours was too much. I cooked it on high for 1 hour and then turned the heat down low for another 2 hours. The onions and peppers were mush and I didn't care for the strong taste of Worcestershire sauce. Nothing special at all."

"If you are looking for a comforting delicious slow-cooked recipe, this is it! It was delicious served with mashed potatoes. Next time I will serve is all over thick slices of bread."

"I agree with the other reviewers about the lack of flavor. That was the only reason that I rated it three stars. That being said, I loved how easy it was to make and it made a really simple meal to throw together. Plus, the meat was nice and tender. Will probably not make this again but it was a nice change of pace for one night."

"I followed the recipe except I had no dill weed so I substituted a teaspoon of dill pickle juice. The sirloin steak was tender but the gravy had very little beef flavor so had to add some brown gravy mix. I think I would also leave out the green pepper as I think that's what made it taste a little too sweet for me."

"I agree with the post a few comments below mine. I followed the directions close, aside from the few crushed red pepper flakes, there was no flavour except the worcestershire.. Maybe I'll cut it into strips if I make it again, help the beef absorb what flavour there is..."
