Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 12-oz extra-lean chuck roast, cut into 
bite-size pieces
  • 4 oz fresh green beans, cut into
1-inch pieces
  • 2 green bell peppers, coarsely chopped
  • 10 oz grape tomatoes, halved

Preparation

  1. Mist a 3- to 3½-qt slow cooker with cooking spray. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tsp oil on medium-high. Add roast and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 3 minutes.
