Steps to Make It

Place the beef strips in the crockery insert of the slow cooker.

Cover and cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours, or until the meat is tender.

Add tomatoes and green peppers; cover and cook on LOW for 1 hour longer.

Combine the cold water and cornstarch to make a smooth paste; stir into the slow cooker, increase the heat to HIGH and continue cooking until the liquids have thickened.
