4-5 tomatoes cut into eighths (or 1 can tomatoes-16oz-with liquid, cut up)
2 large green peppers, cut into strips
1/2 cup cold water
1 T. cornstarch
Cooked noodles or rice
Cut beef into chunky strips, brown in oil in a skillet. Transfer to a crockpot. Combine the next seven ingredients; pour over beef. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours or until meat is tender. Add tomatoes and green peppers; cook on low for 1 hour longer. Combine the cold water and cornstarch to make a paste; stir into the liquid in the crockpot and cook on high until thickened (thickening takes longer than you think-allow time for this). Serve over noodles or rice.
