  • 1
    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.
  • 2
    In 3- to 4-quart slow cooker, layer beef, onions, garlic and gingerroot. In small bowl, mix broth and soy sauce; pour over beef.
  • 3
    Cover; cook on Low heat setting 7 to 9 hours or until beef is tender.
  • 4
    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.

Expert Tips

  • 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.
