Slow Cooker Pepper Steak Recipe

Publisher Photo
Pepper steak is one of my favorite dishes but I was always disappointed with beef that was too tough. This recipe solves that problem! The slow cooker keeps things simple and makes the meat very tender. I've stored leftovers in one big resealable bag and also in individual portions for quick lunches. —Julie Rhine, Zelienople, Pennsylvania
