If you are looking for a good and easy slow cooker recipe this one is for you. I tried this out in 1994 when it was first published Taste of Home. I've been a fan of it ever since then. The soy sauce gives it a great taste. I don't like ginger so I leave it out. I also use diced tomatoes since they are available and flavorful anytime of the year.

Slow-Cooked Pepper Steak
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 medium tomatoes, cut into wedges or 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
1 large green pepper, cut into strips
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup cold water
Hot cooked noodles or rice

Cut beef into 3-in. x 1-in. strips. In a large skillet, brown beef in oil. Transfer to a 3-qt. slow cooker. Combine the onion, soy sauce, garlic, sugar, salt, ginger and pepper; pour over beef. Cover and cook on low for 5-6 hours or until meat is tender. Add tomatoes and green pepper; cook on low 1 hour longer or until vegetables are tender.

Combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; gradually stir into slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 20-30 minutes until thickened. Serve with noodles or rice. Yield: 6 servings.
