Reviews for Slow Cooker Pepper Steak
"I worried that the meat wouldn't be tender because of the cut but it turned out perfect! I ruined the meal when I poured the overly salty sauce over the meat. That was way too much soy sauce!! And, yes, I used low-sodium soy sauce."
"This was delicious. I never used this cut of meat before, but it turned out perfectly. The sauce was really thick and the vegetables nearly disappeared in it, which of course works for some of my children."
"YUMM-OOO!!! This recipe is so easy to set it and forget it in the slow cooker, and my husband, son, and I all L-O-V-E-D the outcome! This recipe has already been placed in my recipe binder, so it *will* be made on a regular basis! Thanks for submitting such an awesome recipe!!!"
"Delicious! I don't even like peppers but loved this recipe! The only thing I changed was adding more water to the crock pot to make more of the gravy! The family loved it as well!"
"Very tasty. I did freeze the leftovers and reheated it using a little beef broth. It wasn't as good."
"Very similar to one I created. I loved the taste! it was easy also"
"Recipe saved! Most likely will **halve** since making full recipe would make too much. THANK YOU. J."
