Slow Cooker Pepper Steak over Lo Mein Noodles

This is a busy time of year.  I have four slow cooker recipes on the menu for this week.  Turn it on in the morning and come home after a busy day to a flavorful, home cooked meal that took (literally) not time out of your crazy day to prepare!  Here is a great recipe for a mild flavored beef dish that works well served over lo mein noodles or over some brown rice!  I like to add a few extra splashes of soy sauce to my plate!

Prep Ahead Plan:  Place all ingredients (except lo mein or rice) in a slow cooker insert the night before.  Refrigerate overnight and turn slow cooker on low in the morning!

Slow Cooker Pepper Steak


  • 2 pounds beef sirloin, cut into 2 inch strips
  • garlic powder to taste
  • 1/2 cup beef broth (heated in microwave for 1 minute)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 large green or yellow bell peppers, roughly chopped
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes, with liquid
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Sprinkle strips of sirloin with garlic powder, salt and pepper and place in slow cooker.
  2. Mix heated broth with cornstarch. Pour into the slow cooker with meat. Stir in onion, peppers*, stewed tomatoes, soy sauce, sugar, and salt.
  3. Cover, and cook on High for 3 to 4 hours, or on Low for 6 to 8 hours.

*If you are going to be home, add the peppers in about 3 hours before the 8 hour cook time in complete.  This leaves them a little crunchy.
