Crockpot Pepper Steak

this is another great crockpot recipe from the slow cooker bible.  after spending all day in the crockpot, the steak is so tender, and the sauce creates such a great flavor that balances so perfectly with the onions and peppers. 

can't you just see the flavor?  if only this crazy thing we call the internet had scratch and sniff picture options.  wait, that could get creepy, nevermind, good call on not having that option, internet.  you won this round.  i change the original recipe a bit by doubling the amount of peppers and using red, orange, and yellow peppers rather than green because i love the bright colors of the finished dish.  also, i omit the teaspoon of salt, because the soy sauce, even the low sodium soy sauce, adds enough salty flavor for my taste.

Crockpot Pepper Steak
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 lbs steak, cut into strips
1 Tbsp garlic, minced
1 onion, cut into chunks
1/2 c soy sauce
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp black pepper
6 peppers, cut into chunks

Warm oil in skillet (or your AllClad Crockpot insert!) and brown steak.  Add garlic and cook for 2 mins.  Add to crockpot insert, add onion, soy sauce, sugar, ginger and pepper.  Cook on low 8-10 hours, adding peppers during last hour of cooking.  Serve over rice.
