Flavors of ginger and soy sauce blend during slow cooking to make a delicious beef dinner.
lb boneless beef round steak
medium onions, cut into 1/4-inch slices
clove garlic, finely chopped
teaspoon finely chopped gingerroot or 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
cup Progresso™ beef flavored broth (from 32-oz carton)
tablespoons soy sauce
cup cold water
medium green bell peppers, cut into 3/4-inch strips
medium tomatoes, cut into eighths
cups hot cooked rice
Remove fat from beef. Cut beef into 6 serving pieces. Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook beef in skillet about 8 minutes, turning once, until brown.
In 3- to 4-quart slow cooker, layer beef, onions, garlic and gingerroot. In small bowl, mix broth and soy sauce; pour over beef.
Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7 to 9 hours or until beef is tender.
In small bowl, mix cornstarch and water; gradually stir into beef mixture. Stir in bell peppers. Increase heat setting to High. Cover; cook 10 to 12 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in tomatoes. Cover; cook about 3 minutes longer or just until tomatoes are thoroughly heated. Serve over rice.
Use any combo of bell peppers for added color.
This slow cooker version has the same pretty color as a stir-fry Pepper Steak. Stirring in the tomatoes at the end helps keep their shape and texture.
Garlic and gingerroot can be purchased chopped in jars. Use 1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic when a recipe calls for a clove of garlic. Store jarred garlic and gingerroot in the refrigerator.
Reduced-sodium soy sauce can be used to trim the sodium.
