Ingredients

Scale
    • 3 pounds of flank steak, cut into strips
    • 4 bell peppers, sliced (choose your favorite colors)
    • 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

Instructions

    1. Prepare the Beef: Begin by cutting the flank steak into thin strips. Place the corn starch in a ziplock bag, add the strips of beef, seal the bag, and shake it well to ensure each piece is thoroughly coated with corn starch.
    2. Mix the Sauce: In your slow cooker, combine the olive oil, brown sugar, soy sauce, water, and minced garlic. Stir well to blend the ingredients together, creating a rich and savory sauce base.
  1. Cook the Beef: Add the coated beef strips to the slow cooker, spreading them out to ensure they are evenly distributed in the sauce. Set your slow cooker to low heat and let it cook for about 4.5 hours.
  2. Add Vegetables: Approximately 1.5 hours before the cooking time is up, add the sliced onions and bell peppers to the slow cooker. This timing is crucial as it allows the vegetables to cook to the perfect tenderness, absorbing the flavors of the sauce without becoming mushy.
  3. Serve and Enjoy: Once the total cooking time of 6 hours is complete, stir the pepper steak to blend all the ingredients. Serve this succulent dish over a bed of steamed rice, garnished with fresh herbs if desired.
