CrockPot Pepper Steak Recipe

Tasty Thursday: Crockpot Pepper Steak

You all know that I am a meat and potatoes kind of girl by default. I am not a fan of chicken and I am allergic to everything that comes out of the sea. This leaves me with my beloved steak. I’m pretty sure I know how to cook beef in every way possible!

This recipe however, is my staple recipe. It is my staple because:

  1. It doesn’t take a long time to prepare

  2. It’s versatile. (it goes with so many side dishes–or no side at all!)

  3. It’s pretty.

  4. It’s delicious. Every single time.

  5. Everyone in my home loves it!

It’s no secret that the Crockpot and I are besties. This pork tenderloin recipe is also one of my favorites but I digress. This recipe is super easy and will likely use ingredients that are already in your pantry.

Crockpot Pepper Steak

I originally got this recipe from Allrecipes.com and have switched it up a bit over the years to make it perfect for *me*.


For example,  I don’t use stewed can tomatoes anymore after I read an article about canned vegetables that really made me think twice about it. I also use several colors of peppers because it’s just prettier. More tasty too!


I also use an insane amount of onions because I love onions… So much! Throw everything together and you have got a great meal!

This looks delicious and always on the lookout for new crockpot recipes to try. And by the way, I love onions, too and the more the better 😉

I am not a huge fan of peppers I use them to flavor and then pick it out of dishes like a child lol. This looks good though and I will have to try it. I am up for anything crockpot wise. I need to buy one more crockpot. Speaking of making food look pretty I am going to be taking a styling class at the end of Feb for food photography because I need to learn

I love crockpot recipes so much! They are so easy. I’m a huge fan of pasta so that is a staple in my house!

Mmmm…sounds tasty! I can’t imagine primarily eating beef – it’s gotten so expensive! Though using lots of colorful peppers and onion is always good in my book!

mm.. Peppers are so pretty! And Cassidy uses canned tomatoes every now and then and I don’t know why. They’re organic, but I’m not into them at all.
