We love Chinese food!! When we order out on the weekends it is usually Chinese Take out. Lately, we have been a little disappointed in our local restaurant, so we have been on a quest to come up with yummy Chinese recipes. It doesn’t hurt if the slow cooker is in the mix. Nothing is better than throwing everything in the Crockpot and forgetting about it until your stomach reminds you it is time for dinner!!!
My family really enjoyed this and it is on the top of the list of redo, make it again!!! I hope you and your family enjoy this recipes.

1 cup yellow pepper, diced
1 cup carrots, diced
