This is an awesome crock pot meal for busy evenings. Having four very active children, I need to have a lot of these kinds of recipes.
This has a very flavorful sauce, and if you have picky eaters like I do, they can skip the broccoli! Thankfully I have a couple of kids who like eating their veggies!
Crock Pot Beef and Broccoli
1 1/2 lbs. beef chuck, sliced thinly
1/2 onion, cut in half
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 cloves of garlic, minced
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 1/2 Tbsp. corn starch
3 cups steamed broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces
Sesame seeds, garnish
Place beef and onion in crock pot. Combine sauce ingredients in small bowl and pour over beef. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours. Ladle out 1/4 cup of the broth and whisk together with the cornstarch. Return to crock pot and stir well. Cover and cook on high for 30 minutes or until the sauce has thickened slightly. Remove onion and stir in broccoli. Or have it on the side so your picky eaters don't waste it. Serve over rice.
