thin sliced beef, red peppers, and onion in a tomato sauce









This is a super simple recipe that tastes great. I always like to use my slow cooker when I know I have a long work day or if I  would rather get dinner going so I don’t have to worry about it later.  Serve with warm tortillas and rice or a great big salad! I really prefer to have fresh greens and veggies for a side for most anything I make for dinner.
