This recipe is absolutely the easiest "take-out-at-home" recipe I've ever made and definitely the most delicious! If you like beef and broccoli, then this is a must try!!! The crockpot makes it so simple - there is no way that you can mess this one up. It was a big hit in our house and much healthier than ordering from your favorite take-out place.
recipe from http://www.bsrecipe.blogspot.com/2012/04/crock-pot-beef-and-broccoli.html
1 pound boneless beef chuck roast, sliced into thin strips
1 cup beef broth or stock
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 T sesame oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
If you want to thicken up the sauce, use 2 T cornstarch and 2 T cooled sauce from the crock pot after being cooked. This step is not necessary, but it will give you that thick sauce like you would get at an Asian restaurant - it is delicious as is!
Fresh broccoli florets (as many as desired, I used 1 package of pre-cut florets, about 3 cups)
Hot cooked brown rice
Place beef on the bottom of a crockpot. In a small bowl, combine beef stock, soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, and garlic. Pour the sauce over beef and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Here is the after picture (I forgot to snap a before).
At this point you also want to add the broccoli to the crock pot. Stir again to combine.
