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

    I made this today so that my wife and I could go for a hike. I used "Italian Style" tomatoes since they already include basil and add oregano. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. The meal was easy to prepare and turned out great. It's a keeper.

    I used a can of diced tomatoes since it was all I had, but it turned out great. My family tore into it and there was hardly any left. Will definitely make again.

    Easy weeknight dinner. Wasn't too crazy about it. Not making again.

    I made this last night using chuck steak like everyone suggested. I used canned mushrooms and (not paying attention to the label) bought stewed tomatoes with celery, onions and green peppers. Also added 1 sliced onion. It is delicious! This is definitely a keeper!

    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!
