EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Reduced-sodium soy sauce can be used to trim the sodium.

Garlic and gingerroot can be purchased chopped in jars. Use 1/2 teaspoon chopped garlic when a recipe calls for a clove of garlic. Store jarred garlic and gingerroot in the refrigerator.

This slow cooker version has the same pretty color as a stir-fry Pepper Steak. Stirring in the tomatoes at the end helps keep their shape and texture.
