Crock Pot Beef & Broccoli

My friend, Katy, posted a picture of her dinner on Facebook.  So, I had to borrow it for here!  Especially since (1) My husband loves Chinese (2) This is a crockpot recipe!





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

1 cup beef consomme, Katy used beef bouillon

1/2 cup soy sauce, reduced sodium

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 Tbsp. sesame oil, Katy skipped this as she didn’t have any :o)

3 garlic cloves, minced, Katy replaced this with 1 Tbls Garlic powder 

2 Tbsp. cornstarch

2 Tbsp. water Fresh broccoli florets (as many as desired), Katy used frozen broccoli and it turned out just fine.

Hot cooked rice

Place beef in crock pot. In a small bowl, combine consomme, soy sauce, brown sugar, oil and garlic.  Pour over beef. Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours. In a cup, stir cornstarch and water until smooth.  Add to crock pot.  Stir well to combine. Blanch broccoli florets and add to the crock pot.  Stir to combine. Cover and cook for an additional 20 minutes on HIGH or until thickened. Serve over hot, cooked rice.
