Pinterest Recipe Success: Crock Pot Beef & Broccoli

You would think that I would be making slow cooker recipes during the week when I am working, but no, I save them for the weekend.  I have been dying to try this recipe for a while, and I don’t know what the heck I was waiting for.  It was amazing!  I didn’t have my husband as a critic this time, hopefully he will try some leftovers though.


Here’s what you need:

  • 1 lb. boneless beef chuck roast, cut into strips (I ended up getting a chuck steak, and it was 0.88 lbs.  Next time I will definitely get more meat!)
  • 1 cup beef consumme or beef broth (I used beef broth)
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar (I always wondered what you’d use dark brown sugar for, now I know!)
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • Frozen broccoli florets (I used a 16 oz bag of broccoli cuts)
  • White or brown rice, cooked (I used instant brown rice)


And here’s what you do:

  • In a bowl, mix together beef broth, soy sauce, dark brown sugar, sesame oil, and garlic.
  • Place strips of meat in crock pot.  Pour sauce over the strips and toss them to coat.
  • Turn your Crock Pot on low for about 6 hours (mine was done in about 5).
  • With about a half hour left of cooking time, take 4 Tbsp of sauce from Crock Pot and mix with 2 Tbsp of cornstarch, then put it back into the sauce to help thicken.
  • Toss in frozen broccoli (if you put it in first thing it will be soggy and gross!) and continue to cook for about 30 minutes.
  • When it is done, serve over rice and ENJOY! :)
