Slow Cooker Pepper Steak

2 tablespoons oil
3 pounds boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut into strips
1 tablespoon minced garlic (5 to 6 cloves)
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3 green bell peppers, cut into strips
1/4 cup cold water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
Hot cooked white rice

Heat oil in large skillet over medium-low heat. Brown steak strips in 2 batches. Add garlic; cook and stir 2 minutes. Transfer steak strips, garlic, and pan juice to slow cooker.
Add onion, soy sauce, sugar, salt, ginger, and black pepper to slow cooker; mix well. Cover; cook on LOW 6 to 8 hours (no more than 10 hours). Add bell pepper strips during final hour of cooking.
Blend water and cornstarch until smooth; stir into slow cooker. Cook, on HIGH 15 minutes or until thickened.
Serve with rice.
I used half the beef call for since it's just the two of us. I still used the same amounts of "the sauce." I used two large bell peppers instead of 3 (I love peppers). Turned out wonderful! DH loved it and asked for me to make this again.
