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. I think adding the cooking wine and honey gave it an extra kick. Read More

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. Read More

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.

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? Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
