Super easy, very budget friendly and absolutely delicious.
2 pounds round steak, cut into bite sized pieces
1 clove garlic, minced (I usually use garlic powder)
3 cups beef broth OR 1 envelope onion soup mix or equivalent with 3 cups water OR 3 cups water and 3 beef boullion cubes or 1 can of condensed french onion soup and 1 can of water.
1 tablespoon ginger (fresh grated or finely diced crystallized)
1 can each (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes and Rotel. Do not drain.
2 bags pepper and onion blend, rough chopped if you want it all bite sized (has red, yellow and green pepper and onion strips and is generally much cheaper than buying fresh- the quality of this dish will not be affected.)
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce blended with 1 tablespoon cornstarch
Combine meat, broth, garlic and ginger in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low setting for 6 hours. Add tomatoes and peppers; cook 1 hour longer. Stir cornstarch mixture into the pot; cook on high setting until thickened.
Serve over rice.
Serves 8 with leftovers.
Easily doubles or triples - we like to make a LOT and freeze so all we have to do is defrost, heat and make rice on busy nights. Pressure cooker rice makes fast work of even that since we're not fans of either the texture or loss of nutrients in most instant rices. :)
