We’ve been playing with our slow cooker lately. Maybe it’s the onset of cooler weather and Fall, but we just cannot get enough of slowly cooked stews and soups.
This slow cooker recipe has become one of our favorites. The flavors are simple – steak, bell peppers, onion and tomato in a sweet and savory sauce made some soy sauce, beef broth and honey.
How to Make Pepper Steak in a Slow Cooker
Cut up onions, peppers and some steak. Give the steak a really quick sear in a pan. See how the steak is browned around the edges — that’s flavor!
The recipe would be great without doing this, but the extra ten minutes of searing the steak adds so much more flavor, we think it’s completely worth it.
Once the steak has a nice crust we add it along with lots of bell peppers, onions, garlic, tomato, soy sauce, and honey.
Sear the beef first
Just before adding the lid and walking away, we deglaze the pan used to brown the steak. Since we seared the steak, the pan used will have brown bits stuck to the bottom.
There is lots of flavor there so we pour in some beef broth and deglaze the pan — which means we use the broth and a wooden spoon to scrap the bottom of the pot, lifting all the brown bits. Then we add the broth with the entire extra flavor to the slow cooker.

Directions for making Honey Soy Slow Cooker Pepper Steak Recipe
Generously season the beef with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef and cook, turning occasionally, until beef is well browned on all sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer to the slow cooker.
Pour beef broth into the pan used to brown the beef then use a wooden spoon to scrape up the stuck browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Whisk in the cornstarch then pour over the beef in slow cooker.
Add the onions, peppers, garlic, diced tomatoes, soy sauce, and honey to the slow cooker. Stir.
Cover the slow cooker and cook until the beef is very tender — on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours or on LOW for 6 to 8 hours. Taste for seasoning and adjust with more salt, pepper or honey. Serve over rice.
