Total time
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 lb sirloin tip steak cut in 1-inch strips
  • 1 cup sliced water chestnuts, drained
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 cups bell peppers, cut in 1-inch cubes
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbs brown sugar
  • 2 tbs dry white wine
  • Thickening: (if desired)
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ½ cup water
  1. Place beef, mushrooms, onion, garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, water chestnuts and wine in slow cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours, high 4-6 hours.
  3. About 15-30 minutes before serving, add the peppers (see NOTES).
  4. If thickening is desired, mix cornstarch and water and stir into the slow cooker. Turn to high (if you cooked on low) and cook for 15 minutes.
You can add peppers at the beginning, but this dish will taste better if you add them later--as per recipe.
