A very easy Asian style Beef and Broccoli in the crock pot.
- 1 lb boneless beef chuck roast, sliced into thin strips
- 1 cup beef consomme
- 1⁄2 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 bunches fresh broccoli florets
- Place beef in a crock pot.
- In a small bowl, combine consomme, soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, and garlic. Pour over beef. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
- In a cup, stir cornstarch and 2 tablespoons sauce from the crock pot until smooth. Add to crock pot. Stir well to combine.
- Add broccoli to the crock pot. Stir to combine.
- Cover and cook an additional 30 minutes on high (the sauce has to boil for it to thicken).
- Serve over hot cooked rice.
This is a great meal. So easy and such tender beef. I would double the beef, though, and reduce the sauce in a saucepan. For me, the broccoli took closer to 45 min to cook. I think I would also add a bit of ginger next time, too.
This is a very good and easy recipe...I agree with using a larger chuck roast though. As for the broccoli, I like to steam mine then add it right before I'm ready to eat.
