Slow Cooker Pepper Steak! An easy, healthy & delicious dinner recipe for busy days! Gluten-free, dairy-free, grain-free and paleo-friendly!

“I received a free sample of Kikkoman soy sauce mentioned in this post. By posting this recipe I am en- tering a recipe contest sponsored by Kikkoman and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest. I was not compensated for my time.”

My love for slow-cooked meals runs deep. I am the kind of person who likes my meat tender and bursting with flavor….and {in my opinion} low and slow is the best method for achieving these results. It’s also imperative to me that meat tastes like something other than meat. You know what I mean? I want every square millimeter to be fully infiltrated with flavor. This Slow Cooker Pepper Steak totally fits all of these criteria {and more}! I have been making this dish since Ritch and I got married close to 10 years ago {woah} and it’s still a favorite in our house to this day.

I’m sure all of you wonderful ladies and gents always have your eyes peeled for delicious, easy & healthy meals that your family will enjoy too. Because let’s face it, kale & quinoa salads don’t even make the list of the top 100 most requested meals by my other family members. {whomp whomp}. However, this Slow Cooker Pepper Steak is on my husband’s “short list” of dinner requests. Lucky for me, it takes very minimal work and just a handful of ingredients to make it too!

One of my “can’t-live-without” condiments is soy sauce. Especially in a dish like this, soy sauce aids in tenderizing meat and giving it that “fall off the bone” quality while imparting a delicious flavor. My friends at Kikkoman send me some samples of their soy sauce to create a delicious recipe…but let’s be real…I am never without the giant jug of this stuff in my refrigerator {Thank you Costco}.

If you notice this recipe doesn’t need any added salt, because using soy sauce gives it a salty savory flavor while drastically reducing the sodium content in the dish. Really! Did you know using 1/2 tsp. Kikkoman Soy Sauce in place of 1/2 tsp. table salt cuts the sodium content of the recipe by 1000 mg?! They even have lower sodium options as well! {Two thumbs up}!

Notes about this Slow Cooker Pepper Steak: 

This dish is SO easy to make. Add most of your ingredients into your slow cooker and let the magic happen. The only thing to note is that it’s important not to overcook the peppers. Adding the peppers in the last hour of cooking ensures that they will retain their shape and flavor when the dish is complete! Serve on top of rice or egg noodles for a delicious dinner!

Substitutions: 

Stewed Tomatoes: . You may substitute a can of diced tomatoes for the stewed tomatoes if you are in a bind.

Peppers: Feel free to use any color or variety of bell pepper that you would like!

Honey: There is only 1 tsp in this recipe because it brings out the flavor of the tomatoes. Feel free to use regular granulated sugar or omit completely if necessary.

Beef Broth: You can make your own beef broth or use bullion and water to achieve the same results!
