Slow Cooked Pepper Steak

Have a meat eater in the family??
This is a savory tender sirloin recipe with some rustic veggies and a delicious tomato based sauce that simmers right along with the steak. It only takes a few minutes of prep time, then pop it in the slow cooker and come home to a hot dinner. This is great over rice or noodles. Serve with a salad and dinner is ready in minutes!

2 pounds beef sirloin, cut into 2 inch strips
1 Tbl. minced garlic
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 beef bouillon cube
1/4 cup hot water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 large green bell peppers, roughly chopped
1 sm. can sliced mushrooms
1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes, with liquid
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the vegetable oil and brown the seasoned beef strips and garlic. Transfer to a slow cooker.
Mix bouillon cube with hot water until dissolved, then mix in cornstarch until dissolved. Pour into the slow cooker with meat. Stir in onion, green peppers, mushrooms, stewed tomatoes, soy sauce, sugar, and salt.
Cover, and cook on High for 3 to 4 hours, or on Low for 6 to 8 hours.
