Venison Pepper Steak


This is seriously my family's
ABSOLUTE FAVORITE.
As a mom and wife who cherishes
being a mom and wife,
I love hearing all the oohs and aahs
that come with serving this dish.
If you decide to try it and enjoy it,
please let me know.
It's so fun to hear from others,
especially when it's positive and encouraging.

As I stated in my
(click on it to see it)
I usually gear my weekly cooking
around the "featured" meat product
in my local grocery ads.
Of course, it has to be a product that my family enjoys
and the price has to be a great deal.
I don't cook much with "brisket" or "New York strip."
Therefore, when the featured product is
something of these natures,
I fall back on my other cooking strategies.

My boys hunt, praise the Lord!
Genesis 9:2 explains how God gave us this privilege.
During the weeks that I can't take advantage
of the grocery ads' featured meat product,
I rely on what God has provided through my boys.

This is our absolute fav fav favorite!

SLOW COOKER PEPPER STEAK
(Originally found in "Feasting with your Slow Cooker" Fix It and Forget It.  My recipe has been modified to suite the tastes of my family.)

2 lbs beef round, cubed (I use venison.)
2 TBsp oil (I use ONE TBsp bacon grease.)
1/4 C soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp minced onion
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 large green pepper, cut in strips
1 -16oz can petite diced tomatoes
1/2 C cold water
1 TBsp cornstarch

Brown meat in bacon grease.  Transfer to slow cooker.  In small mixing bowl, combine all ingredients excluding the last four.  Pour over meat.  Cover and cook on LOW 5-6 hours.  Pour tomatoes over meat and top with green pepper strips.  Cover and cook 1 hour longer.  Combine water and cornstarch to make a paste.  Stir into slow cooker.  Leave uncovered and cook on high about 10 minutes or until slightly thickened.  Serve over rice or noodles.  (My family requests it with angel hair pasta.)
