Slow Cooker Pepper Steak Recipe

This is a good and healthy recipe. However, it is not compatable with the Candida diet because it has sugar.

(Update on my cleanse: I have taken a break from it because I have metal fillings in my mouth. This conflicts with the candida diet because yeast feed off the metals that leach into the digestive track from the fillings. The candida diet requires you fix this first before starting the cleanse. So I have put my cleanse on hold until these are replaced with porcelain fillings.)

Adapted from


  • 2 pounds beef sirloin, cut into 2 inch strips
  • 1-2 clove of garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons safflower oil or coconut oil
  • 1 can organic beef broth
  • 1/4 cup hot water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch (or potato starch)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 large green bell peppers, roughly chopped
  • 3-4 roma tomatoes, blended but still chunky
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce (I made a substitue soy sauce from this recipe)
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Sprinkle strips of sirloin with garlic powder to taste. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the vegetable oil and brown the seasoned beef strips. Transfer to a slow cooker.
  2. Mix bouillon cube with hot water until dissolved, then mix in cornstarch until dissolved. Pour into the slow cooker with meat. Stir in onion, green peppers, stewed tomatoes, soy sauce, sugar, and salt.
  3. Cover, and cook on High for 3 to 4 hours, or on Low for 6 to 8 hours.
