Crock pot creation: Pepper steak

It's Monday and the perfect time for another crock pot creation. Jordan was in charge of this one. He cut of the ingredients on Sunday afternoon. Put in 1/2 of the mixture at lunch time and then finished it off at 5pm. Not the most convenient for those who work far away from home, but it worked for us tonight.
Slow Cooked Pepper Steak
1 1/2 lb beef round steak, sliced in strips
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 C soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1 C chopped onion
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ginger
2 large green peppers, cut in strips
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes

See how nice a wife I am? I laid out all of the ingredients for Jordan so he would be all ready to throw them into the pot.

1. Brown beef in oil in sauce pan. Transfer to slow cooker.
2. Combine soy sauce, garlic, onions, sugar, and spices. Pour over meat in slow cooker.
3. Cover and cook on low for 5 hours.
4. Add green peppers and tomatoes. Cook for 1 more hour.
5. Serve over rice or noodles.
Over all it was very good. I added a 1/2 C water with the meat because it makes me nervous to have the crock pot on when I am not home especially when there is no liquid. The taste was really good however for me an ideal crock pot recipe is throw it all in and let it cook. This dish had way too many pots. The multiple additions would have been impossible if we didn't live so close to the office. We had ours with egg noodles. Overall it was a success and there are plenty of leftovers for lunch tomorrow.
