Beef Recipes with a spicy kick!

I love takeout beef and bell pepper and this is the lightened up version of it. I purposely did not brown up the chuck beef, onion or the bell pepper to not use any oil, but if you wish, the dish would be even better if you brown up the beef on high heat with some oil, remove it to the slow cooker;  then in the same skillet toss the onion and bell pepper until some browning occurs and only then layer it in the slow cooker. So here’s to delicious, healthy meals for busy moms! This beef chuck and bell pepper recipe even has a spicy kick to it! Another great recipe to add to your beef recipes.
