Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli

I usually cook broccoli beef in a wok. Beef Broccoli Resizejpg
I decided to try putting everything I normally would add to a wok in a slow cooker. Now it’s in our weekly rotation of meals.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 c. low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 c. brown sugar
  • 2 tbs sesame oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic (chopped)
  • 1 c. low sodium beef broth or chicken broth
  • 1 lb beef (we used rib eye and cut it in strips, or chuck roast cut into strips as well)
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 3 large broccoli stalks (florets)
  • Dash of pepper
  1. Mix all ingredients except for veggies and beef in a bowl
  2. Add beef to mixture and place in a slow cooker on low until tender. This usually takes about 4-6 hours depending on your cooker)
  3. Add broccoli and red pepper about 30-45 minutes before serving. Any earlier and you will have soggy veggies.
  4. Serve over white rice

Tip: Each soy sauce and broth brands have a different amount of salt so you can reduce it if you feel it’s too salty. Another tip: I use a pressure cooker for faster cooking only 45 minutes. This is our favorite one –> Here (affl link)

FYI: The video below shows me adding the veggies before beef is cooked. My son woke up from his nap early, so I had to cut my video short ;). Please add veggies when the beef has been cooking for about 5 hours already. Otherwise you will have soggy veggies!
