Recipe of the Month Nomination: Slowcooker Pepper Steak
- I'd like to nominate this recipe for Octobers Recipe of the month. See people do pay attention to your hints! The recipe was very good, I was worried about the green peppers all day. If I was home I would probably add them halfway thru the day (I cooked for 11 hours on low), but it was very good regardless. One other change - I thought bits of tomato was wierd in pepper steak, so I used tomatoe sauce (8oz), this gave me volume and the flavor as intended. I would double this next time so that I had leftovers. We served it over rice and there was nothing left for lunches. Terri, Denver CO

really hate nagging people : ) to the point where even a basic
reminder feels like nagging.
Also good because we do regularly have people wondering if they can
do this sort of thing (Chinese food favorites) in the slowcooker so
nice to have a recipe with comments out there.
And for any newbies wondering what we're talking about, here goes the
full blurb about the contest:
The idea behind the contest is to identify TNT great recipes we've
tried and loved. This is supposed to be about the absolute favorites
that people beg you to make again and again, or as was noted on one
of the March nominees - that you can't keep your spouse out of while
it's still cooking. So don't be afraid to nominate a recipe just
because you think it's too every day and not fancy enough. The only
restriction is that you can't nominate a prior winner or runner up
(listed on the contest winner site at
http://malincholia.com/slowcookerwinners.htm (be sure to check the
links for prior years too).
Here are the contest guidelines:
1. The contest opens for nominations on the first of each month and
closes on the 20th of the same month (end of day EDST).
2. That's because voting begins on the 21st of the month, when the
nominations are set up in a monthly poll on the yahoo group site at
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/slowcooker/polls and ends on the last
day of the month (end of day EDST)
2. All recipes nominated must have been posted on the Slowcooker
List. If you tried a recipe that you loved but it hasn't already been
posted on the Slowcooker List, then just post it!
3. To nominate a recipe, you must have tried it, and you should also
do so before voting. That's supposed to be part of the fun - to give
the group the inspiration to try some new things that have already
been TNT by someone you can ask questions about it.
4. To nominate a recipe, include the words "RECIPE NOMINATION" in
your header to make sure I see it and post the following information
to the slowcooker list at firstname.lastname@example.org. The post should include:
-- a copy of the recipe
-- your comments about why the recipe was so great and any
modifications you made
-- who originally contributed it to the Slowcooker List (if at all
possible) and any other applicable source. Even if it's just to say a
long lost neighbor whose name you can't recall
5. To simplify voting and tracking the votes, we're do this via the
poll function at the yahoo group site
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/slowcooker/polls Each monthly contest
will appear as a new poll, available beginning the 21st of the month
as soon as possible after the nomination process closes.
You vote by going to the site and logging in with your yahoo ID. I'll
re-post the details about doing that when voting opens this month.
That's it! The voting will be closed at the end of the month, and the
winner announced in the first few days of the following month, with
the recipe posted on the web page as soon as possible afterward. What
do I win, you ask? Just that - fame and glory, with your recipe
appearing prominently on one of the places people get pointed to when
they have requests, especially when they have trouble searching the archives.
