Thanks for joining me for this week’s Crock Pot Wednesday. We’ll be visiting an often-requested favorite from that standard of all things Southern, Southern Living.
I’m not sure that I have every tried a recipe from Southern Living that my family did not enjoy. It’s nice to have those standby goodies to go to, isn’t it.
This one, Slow-Cooked Pepper Steak, is from Southern Living’s Homestyle Cooking. It promises that you can “enjoy memories of the meals you grew up with” with its more than 400 recipes. Many of these simple, easy-to-prepare ideas were certainly found on the dinner tables where I grew up.
SLOW-COOKED PEPPER STEAK
2 pounds top round steak (1 inch thick, trimmed)
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can peeled tomato wedges
2 large green bell peppers, cut into 1-inch-wide strips
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water
Hot cooked noodles or rice
Cut steak into 3-inch pieces; brown in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Transfer steak to a 4-quart slow cooker. Add tomatoes and pepper strips.
Combine onion and next 6 ingredients; pour over mixture in slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH setting 7 hours. (I cook on LOW because mine usually cooks longer if I put it on before leaving for work. Even then, I usually add anothe 1/2 cup of water or so.)
Combine cornstarch and water, stirring until smooth. Stir into mixture in slow cooker; cook, uncovered, on HIGH 10-15 minutes or until mixture is thickened and bubbly.
Serve over noodles or rice.
This is also good using pork tenderloin in place of the beef.Serves 6
I look forward to what you have to say.
