Bursting with flavor and tender chunks of steak, this dish is sure to become a family favorite. The best part? It requires minimal effort, thanks to the convenience of a slow cooker. Let’s dive into the details and learn how to make this delectable dish.

Preparing the Steak

To start off, you’ll need 3 pounds of flank steak. This cut of meat is known for its rich flavor and tenderness when cooked properly. Begin by cutting the flank steak into thin strips. This will allow the meat to absorb the flavors of the sauce and become tender during the slow cooking process.

Coating the Steak

Next, it’s time to add a crispy and flavorful coating to the steak. Take half a cup of corn starch and add it to a large ziplock bag along with the steak strips. Seal the bag and shake well to ensure that each piece of steak is evenly coated. This step will not only add a delightful crunch to the dish but also help thicken the sauce as it cooks.

Browning the Steak

Before transferring the steak to the slow cooker, we’ll give it a quick sear to enhance the flavor. Heat three tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the coated steak to the skillet and brown it on all sides, stirring occasionally. This process should take approximately five minutes and will create a beautiful caramelization on the meat, adding depth to the final dish.

Slow Cooking

Transfer the browned steak to the slow cooker and pour the sauce over it. Make sure the steak is fully submerged in the sauce to ensure even cooking and maximum flavor absorption. Cover the slow cooker and set it to low heat. Allow the steak to cook for six hours, allowing the flavors to meld together and the meat to become tender and juicy.

Adding the Vegetables

After four and a half hours of cooking, it’s time to add the vegetables to the slow cooker. Slice two medium onions, two green peppers, and two red peppers into thin strips. Add them to the slow cooker, mixing well with the steak and sauce. The vibrant colors and crisp texture of the peppers will add freshness and a delightful crunch to the dish. Cover the slow cooker and continue cooking for an additional one and a half hours, until the vegetables are tender and the steak is fully cooked.
