This is a great recipe, although I changed a few things. I left out the salt, doubled the garlic, added a tablespoon of ginger, added 1/4 cup red wine, added 1/4 cup of honey, and threw in some carrots and broccoli. It turned out GREAT.

ok so i havent eaten it yet but i have picked at it and its DELICIOUS! i followed the recipe and my meat was VERY tender within 2 1/2 hours. and that was with my crock pot set to 8 hours on low. so i dont know why the recipe says 6 to 8 hours. so i will be leaving it on warm until dinner time as it is only 2:50 pm.but its a keeper and i would recommend it to anyone.
This recipe has become a part of my slow cooker repertoire. I found this recipe about a year ago and it has become one of our favorites. So easy and so good - my husband is a "meat and potatoes" man, so he loves this pepper steak teamed with mashed potatoes and a salad.
Maybe it's me. The reviews sounded great. My family found this bland. Every recipe sounds good, but all these slow cooker recipes seem bland in the end. They smell great while cooking + when you walk in the door. Rival new oval cooker. Pork, ham, beef chicken all taste simular + everything falls apart. Is this normal?
I doubled the recipe and used stewing beef, added worchestersire sauce, a bit of ginger, and some hot pepper sauce as we like our food spicy. It turned out great! I will definitely make again but I will likely use a little less soy sauce as it was a bit salty - even with the low sodium sauce and omitting the extra salt.
This is such a nice meal, I also add a bag of birds eye baby brocoli, cauliflower and endeme mix the last hour or two and I double the sauce atleast. Serve over brown rice, have made this several times.
MADE THIS TONIGHT STOVETOP...TOTALLY AWESOME!!!!!!
this was sooo good!!! usually i'm not a good cook but my husband absolutely loved this. i think i'm going to make it at least once a week now
Tasty. Did not add extra salt, did add a good red wine and a few tblsp of balsalmic vinegar as well as some extra water before adding to initial meat mixture. I made sure to taste the sauce before adding to the meat mixture. The only reason for the 4 star rating is because of the changes made.Also added broccoli and carrots. Will make this again for sure.
This is a great and simple meal. Tender, juicy, tasty. Now a regular meal for my table. Not sure how the bad reviewers screwed up this meal. (overly salty being the exception) If you don't usually salt your meals, definately leave out the extra salt. But as a salt-a-holic myself, it was just salty enough. Don't over cook the meat in the browning process and you'll do just fine.
Great, but I made a few changes. Left out the salt because of the soy sauce and left out the sugar, switched the green peppers for red (which are sweeter than green). Thanks for the recipe.
This is delicious! Even my kids like it and they cant stand bell pepper. I want to say I followed the recipe exactly, but I made 2 mistakes: 1) I accidentally used worchershire sauce instead of soy sauce (the bottles look the same!) and I misread the amount of sirloin and only bought 1.5 lbs. It was still awesome! Ill make it correctly next time and expect it to be even better.
Good but we found it a bit too salty.
This is really good rustic home cooking. Great with mashed potatoes.
This is a 5 star recipe with a few alterations. I really recommend adding some red wine before cooking as others have done - it adds a richness to the sauce. I used stew meat, because I had it on hand and it came out very tender. It took some time to get the sauce thickened. The flavor was great and prep is easy. Definitely worth a try!
Although this was a good recipe for pepper steak and very easy to make, it had too many green peppers for my taste. I think two green peppers would have been just right. Either way it was pretty good...
I wish that half stars could be awarded, this would be three and a half. I thought it a three, my husband thought it a four. This dish is pretty bland, the sauce needs some tinkering. I put a few drops of Frank's Buffalo sauce in it, but that didn't even really liven it up. The meat is tender and it tastes fine, but nothing special. I wouldn't serve it to company, but it does make the house smell delicious. With some adjustments it could be a lot better.
This was good, but salty even though I cut the soy to 1/4 cup, and added a cup of beef broth (no water). I too used tri color peppers and sliced onion it was a very "pretty" dish. Thanks CBCBROWN!
My family liked this. I will try it again, next time maybe enhancing the sauce with more flavors. I did add ground ginger and that was good, but to make enough gravy/sauce I doubled the cornstarch mixture which made it a little more bland. Definite potential.
I thought this was pretty good. I did add about a teaspoon of ginger. Next time I will add more. I marinated the meat in some soy sauce, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, and garlic. Also mine took forever to thicken up so I would suggest using more of the cornstarch mixture. Thanks for the recipe.
This smells delicious while cooking. We added the additional salt which made it un-edible! The soy sauce adds plenty of sodium so no additional salt is necessary. Otherwise, this dish is terrific. Thanks for sharing.
This was pretty darn tasty!!!!
Not great. Kinda bland.
I pretty much went with the changes Linda Mclean made. I used light soy sauce and reduced the amount, left out the sugar and salt, added in garlic powder and worcester sauce. I used red and green peppers and made the cornflour mix with beef broth. The result was wonderful. Thanks Linda for the tips and thanks cbcbrown for the starting point.
This was GREAT!!!!!!!!! I did tweek the recipe to add color and more flavor to it. Instead of all green peppers, I used red, yellow, and the green to give it more color. I also added onion powder, garlic powder, 1/2 cup red wine, honey and only put 1/2 of the recommended salt. This dish had a very nice sweet flavor. I served this over sticky white rice. It was even better the second day!! Thanks for the recipe!
This was a good recipe and we served it with noodles and a salad. This is a keeper.
I thought this recipe was very easy to prepare. I followed it to the "T" and it was perfect. Once you change the recipe all around, it is not fair to give it a bad rating. I poured it over brown rice and it was absolutely delicious!
Very good meal. Lots of flavor. Meat was just a little dry, should have only cooked it for 6 hours on low. Will definitely make again!!
This is a great recipe and turned out perfectly. If you like it less salty use lite soy and leave out 1 tsp of salt. To add flavor used diced tomatoes with basil, oregano and cut all fat off meat to reduce grease. I cooked for 6 hours in slow cooker and it was perfect. I did double the sauce and served over rice. My husband loved it. Easy to make.
My DH and I liked it, but I wish it had more flavor to it. I think with some adjustments it will be even better!
Good but salty. I'll make this again but next time I plan to omit the salt and use low sodium soy sauce.
I used red and yellow peppers instead of green, just personal preference. Even my preschooler ate it, which is saying something!
I found this to be OK but lacking in flavor. Nothing terrific that would make me want to make it again. Just so so. Definitely did not need the extra salt. There is enough with the soy sauce.
made this dish in my electric frying pan followed recipe except added red wine to the sauce...Yummy!
I added 1/2 tsp. ginger to this recipe. It was very tender and extremely delicious! It is awesome over rice.
I like this alot. My husband said it was okay. I added broccoli to mine the last 30 minutes. Yum. Easy too.
This was absolutely delicious!! I added red peppers to give it a bit of color. I will definitely make this again.
It was ok, but nothing outstanding. Put brown gravy over the beef and rice, without it, it would have been dry. I will make again but will not add salt.
This recipe was excellent. I omitted the extra salt and added some red wine also. My boyfriend loved it! I'll definitely be making this again.
Perfect dinner for the whole family. I did add more LIGHT soy sauce and more water. No salt! Served mine over stir fried veggies, mostly broccoli, and served kids' over rice. Think next time I'll serve over chow mein noodles. Everyone loved it!
Pepper steak has been a favorite in my family for 2 generations. I found this and it is so similar to my recipe but gave the extra flavor we have been looking for. FANTASTIC. Except I agree, too much salt. Next time I will leave the salt out and it will be better than perfect.
def a good recipe but you gotta leave out the extra salt, oh and less soy sauce just add a little extra water
Good base recipe, but it needed a little umpf. I used leftover london broil which didn't need searing; beef broth in lieu of water (and much more than stated), no sugar, no salt, cut back on the lite soy sauce, added a bit of worcestershire sauce and used red, green, yellow and orange peppers. Garlic and onion powders helped with the flavoring. All in all a good recipe that I served over orzo pasta. Thanks!
This was wonderful. I haven't had this since I was a kid. My son who is so pick loved it and my husband just raved about it; thank you for sharing.
i served this dish with jambalaya rice it gave it a nice KICK i also added carrots mushrooms and broccoli red beans chick peas what a combo! my kids even liked it and they range from 16 to 4 this is a keeper no left overs in this house
First time making this and it was a big hit with my family!! They loved it!! And yes, I doubled the sauce. Served it over steamed rice. I will definitely make this again. 5 stars without a doubt.
This was not good. It was so salty and dry and did not need to cook for 6-8 hours. I ended up picking up KFC for dinner.
This was a great meal. It took a little more prep than I would like, but mostly it's just chopping the veggies. I don't eat meat, and jsut ate the sauce over rice. My husband put the steak, sauce and rice in a tortilla and ate it as a fajita. I didn't add the extra salt like some of the reviews said, and I think it was plenty salty.
very easy, very yummy!
This was very good and easy. I will be making this again. The only changes I made are I used sliced tri tip steaks because this is what I had. Followed all other instructions and ingredients except I did not add the salt...it is plenty salty with just the soy sauce. And I did not add peppers because I dont like them. Served this with mashed potatoes. Hubby loved it and said it reminded him of his moms pot roast. A better picture of this should be uploaded because the one here does not do it justice
I wasn't that crazy about this recipe. The flavor seemed to be lacking to me and it was a bit too salty for my taste. I even used low sodium soy sauce. I will not make it again
This was a really simple recipe. The only thing is, and i hope someone can help me with this, whenever it was done. The broth was really greasy, and it didn't have as much flavor in it, as it did in the beginning. I would really like to mastor this dish, Thank you for the Recipe!!
Very tasty, but I would omit the salt next time. The soy sauce is salty enough for us.
Loved it! I accidentally used worcester instead of soy sauce at first, but I drained it and then added the soy sauce - maybe this touch of worcester enhanced the flavor. Otherwise I followed it exactly (halved the recipe) and it was perfect. Might be salty for some, but not me.
Very tasty! The only difference was that I made this dish in my microwave pressure cooker.
Did not add any salt, used low sodium soy sauce, one cup of beef broth in place of water. I added the peppers in the beginning, should have waited until the last hour of cooking (as per recipe). Served with brown rice in a bowl. The steak was so tender, we used a spoon. Yum.
Tried this recipe as written but ended up doctoring it when it turned out a little to bland. Added more garlic, red wine, worcestershire sauce, mushrooms, 2 onions. Family loved it.
yes and it was fantastic. tweaked the ingredients and my family loved it
we halved it. there is only the two of us. This was a great meal. My wife liked it so much she said we would probably have once a month.
We loved this. Super easy and flavorful. While doing Whole30, used coconut aminos and tapioca instead of soy sauce and cornstarch.
This was a disappointing recipe. I omitted the salt, but the meat was still unbelievably salty from the soy sauce (to the point of inedible). It also looked & tasted charred after cooking in the crock pot. I ended up putting everything in a sauce pan and cooked the peppers like a stir fry. My husband threw most of his out. Sorry, but I'll have to keep looking for a pepper steak recipe which doesn't use the crock pot.
Loved this meal will defiantly use again i used one red pepper and two green peppers added colour and taste, my hubby found it a bit sweet so will follow other people and later slightly next time but both my children and myself loved it. I served it with rice YUM!
I cooked this exactly as it indicated and served over rice and it was GREAT!!
That was REALLY good. Now we were looking for a way to get rid of our yellow and orange bell peppers so we used these instead of green, and it came out absolutely delicious. I wouldn't change a thing, though I imagine if you want to use a cheaper priced roast meat that would likely work just as well, it's just that sirloin is leader. Gonna make this again.
This recipe is amazing! I left out the cornstarch bit because my husband does not like thick sauces and added one chopped jalapeno for a small kick and it was the perfect balance.
This was really good. I added a tad bit more water, garlic powder to the browning meat, and a teaspoon of wostershire sauce. But those were the only differences. It came out awesome. I also cooked it on high for 4.5 hours to save some time. Still was very tasty!
Delicious and not very complicated to make.
I made this last night and it was pretty good. I didn't add salt or sugar. I think next time I make it I will add a little ginger to it. That's what it may be missing
I have made this many many times and it is a favorite in our home. The meat practically melts in your mouth.
I made this last night and it was excellant. I cooked it in my Presto Options Slow Cooker set on Warm for six hours. I omitted the salt and doubled the cornstarch and water and it was perfecto! (For an added taste, put in a 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon)
I added red cooking wine and worcestershire sauce and it was good!!
