Let me take you back to a chilly autumn evening when I first stumbled upon this delightful recipe. It was one of those days when time seemed to slip away, and I found myself searching for a satisfying dinner idea that wouldn’t keep me tied to the kitchen all evening. Little did I know that this slow cooker wonder would become an instant hit with my family. The aroma of tender beef, sweet onions, and vibrant peppers wafted through our cozy home, filling the air with anticipation. As we gathered around the dinner table, our taste buds were met with an explosion of flavors, and we knew that this recipe had earned its place among our treasured family favorites.


  • 3 pounds of flank steak, cut into strips
  • 4 bell peppers, sliced (whatever color and combo you choose)
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 cups of soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of corn starch
  • 1 cup of brown sugar


  • 1. Cut flank steak into strips. Place the corn starch and the strips of beef into a ziplock bag. Close the bag and shake it thoroughly to coat the beef with the corn starch.
  • 2. In a slow cooker, add the olive oil, brown sugar, soy sauce, water, and minced garlic. Stir the mixture until well combined.
  • 3. Gently place the coated beef strips into the slow cooker, ensuring they are evenly distributed in the mixture.
  • 4. Set the slow cooker to cook on low heat for approximately 6 hours. This will allow the flavors to meld together and the meat to become tender.
  • 5. About 1.5 hours before the cooking time is complete, add the onions and peppers to the slow cooker. These vegetables will add freshness and additional flavor to the dish.
  • 6. Continue cooking for the remaining 1.5 hours, allowing the peppers and onions to soften and incorporate their flavors into the dish.

Once the cooking time is complete, your Slow Cooker Pepper Steak is ready to be served. Enjoy the delicious combination of tender beef, savory sauce, and flavorful vegetables.
