Crock Pot Beef and Broccoli
Chinese food is one of my kids favorite things. My husband will not eat chinese unless we fix it at home and don't tell him the cuisine. Making it at home is also a lot cheaper than going out to eat it.
This dish is easy to make and the best part is cooks in the crock pot. No need to saute meat first simply put it straight in the crock pot.
1 cup of beef broth
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce (Kikkoman)
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 T of sesame oil
1 T minced garlic
2 lbs of boneless beef chuck roast, thinly sliced
2 T of cornstarch
2 heads of broccoli, cut into florets
Mix (I just put it in the crock pot and mix it) together the beef broth, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, sugar, sesame oil and garlic. Cut up meat into thin slices and add to the crock pot. Cook on low for 1 1/2 hours. Add in the broccoli now and in a small bowl mix together a 1/4 cup of water and 2 T of cornstarch and pour into crock pot and mix well. Cover crock pot and cook for an additional 30 minutes. It may take longer depending on your crock pot and how it heats up. After 30 minutes just keep checking until done. Serve immediately over rice. Pour some of the juice from the crock pot on top.
I like to add green onions on the top for extra flavor when serving with a little salt and pepper and soy sauce.
