Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli

I found this recipe actually on Facebook, but I think it originally came from a blog called The Recipe Critic. The recipe is as following:

Ingredients:

1 lb. boneless, beef chuck roast, sliced into thin strips

1 cup beef consommé or beef broth

1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce

1/3 cup dark brown sugar

1 tbsp. sesame oil

3 garlic cloves minced

2 tbsp cornstarch

Frozen Broccoli Florets (I used one bag)

White or brown rice, cooked

Directions:

In a mixing bowl, whisk together the beef consume, soy sauce, dark brown sugar, sesame oil, and garlic.

 

Lay the beef strips in the crock pot and pour the sauce over, tossing the strips to coat.

 

Turn the crock pot on low and cook for about 6 hours. Mine was ready at 5. You don’t want to cook the beef too long or it will start to shred.

 

When it is just about done, take 4 Tbsp of the sauce and whisk it in a small bowl with the cornstarch. I added about 2 extra tsps of cornstarch to thicken it up a little bit more. Slowly stir this into the crock pot. I added the broccoli in at this point so that it could get heated through. You want to let it cook an additional 30 minutes so that the sauce can thicken and frozen broccoli can cook. You don’t want to add the broccoli until the very end or it will be mushy.

 

Serve over white rice and enjoy!!

I am actually making this today and when it’s done I will post pictures and a review of the recipe itself. I do have to say it smells so good!

Ciao!
