If you don’t have a crock pot yet, there are some nice ones on sale. I love the programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home. You can set it for the amount you need and leave the house for the day.

It will cut off for when you programmed it, and keep it warm until you are ready to eat. I LOVE this feature and it is perfect for this Chinese pepper steak recipe. Also it seals close so you can transport it for parties and tailgates.

I also love my Instant Pot Aura. It is pretty awesome because you can brown your ground beef or your chicken in the pot and then let is slow cook all day.

That means one more less pan to cook for most recipes. This has become my new favorite crock pot just because of that one feature!

Ok, enough talking, let’s get cooking!

Recipe Notes

If you could like your sauce to be thicker. One hour before dinner is ready, in a small bowl combine 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with a ¼ cup of cold water. Mix together. Stir in to the crock pot. Turn the crock pot to high and let the sauce thicken for the last hour of cook time.
The peppers are soft in this recipe.  If you prefer firm peppers, do not add them in at the beginning of the cook time and stir them in for the last 1 hour of the cooking time if cooking on low or 30 minutes if cooking on high.

    I have made this so many times and it always turns out so good!!! My family ask for it a lot!

  2. When I was in college my boyfriend’s mom made this for us. I loved it but never got the recipe! Thanks so much!

  3. This has got to be the easiest most delicious recipe for peppered steak on the web!! My family absolutely loved it! It’s going to be on my weekly routine menu!! Thank you for making my life easier!

  4. I cannot wait to try this, looks delicious! I will probably double the recipe, I’m feeding three teens and we like leftovers

  5. Is there a way I could make this with a big beef roast for a party/ large mass qty! Would love to make this for my daughters bday!

  6. Yes, I would cook the roast with the seasoning and leave the peppers out. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or on high for 4-5 hours. Then shred the beef, stir in the peppers and cook on high for 30-60 minutes until the peppers are soft. I hope it works out for your daughter’s birthday and that everyone enjoys it!
