We grow the basil and bell peppers I use in this dish. It's easy to prepare, yet so rich and delicious. —Sheryl Little, Sherwood, Arkansas

"When I think slow cookers I usually think winter foods.This was really good plus it didn't heat up the kitchen and was ready when I got home from work. The only change I made was I added onions instead of mushrooms.I added the onions and peppers an hour before serving it .served over rice."

"Very easy dish. . The broth that you end up with has a LOT of delicious flavor. Like the other reviewer, I subbed chuck steak since it tenderizes nicely in the slow cooker. Next time, I'll add the peppers closer to the end of the cooking time as I prefer them crisp tender."

"Delicious! Made this in class and it turned out perfect! We used boneless chuck steak for the meat. I will definitely make this again!"
