Slow-Cooker Beef-Vegetable

Slow Cooker Chinese Beef Recipes


Set and forget this easy Take-Out, Fake-Out: Beef & Broccoli {Crockpot}!

Time to break out the crockpots :) one of the best parts of the cooler weather is being able to breakout the crockpot to make delicious soups, stews, and cozy dinner meals such as this one!

You all know my obsession with chicken & broccoli, well I’m also obsessed with beef and broccoli so this slow cooker version is right up my alley. I love setting up a meal and just forgetting about it. You have the freedom to do whatever you want while a delicious meal is cooking away. Let me tell you – your whole house will smell AMAZING and the flavors in the sauce are to die for. I probably could’ve dunked all my rice in it, but I needed sauce for the next day as these make great leftovers :)

I can’t wait for all the slow-cooker recipes coming this fall/winter. The only thing that irked me in the past about them was the fact that I had to make them on the weekends cause I have this fear of having the slow cooker on while I was at work. I always worried it’d burn down my house. I found a solution. An electric on/off timer. I bought this and I can now set the time of when I want the slow cooker to start and when to stop. I’ll likely set it only to start because I’ll time it so when I get home, it’ll be done so I can just unplug it :) It’s a great investment and I can’t wait to cook more in my slow cooker! Fear of my house burning down should subside.

Okay, let’s have some fun! I know it’s random but I thought I’d throw this in here. Seven things that you most likely didn’t know about me:

  1. I have perfectly straight teeth and I had no braces.
  2. I have no arm hair. No joke. If we ever cross paths, I can show you.
  3. I did ballet and jazz for 8 years.
  4. I have a fascination with aviation (even though I have anxiety with flying) and I’ve always dreamed of becoming an air traffic controller.
  5. I’ve never gotten any tickets, although I probably just jinxed myself and will get one on the drive home today.
  6. I’m triple jointed.

Tell me something I might not know about you! :)

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. boneless, beef chuck roast, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 cup beef consumme or beef broth
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 4 tbsp. sauce (from the crockpot after dish is cooked)
  • Frozen broccoli florets (as many as desired, I believe I used almost 2 cups)
  • White rice, cooked

Instructions

  1. In the insert of the crockpot, whisk together beef consume, soy sauce, dark brown sugar, sesame oil, and garlic.
  2. Gently place your slices of beef in the liquid and toss to coat.
  3. Turn crockpot on low and cook for 6 hours.
  4. When done, in a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and cooking liquid to create a slurry, pour into crockpot, stir to mix well. Cook on low for an additional 30 minutes to thicken up the sauce.
  5. Toss in your broccoli florets then serve hot over white rice.

Cuisine: Chinese | Recipe Type: Main Entree, Slow Cooker

Notes

Note about cooking time: Your crockpot may differ in temperature than mine, I suggest cooking this for 4 hours on your first go-round of this dish. 6 hours in the crockpot seems to be giving a lot of people "shredded" beef instead of slices, so decrease cooking time by 2 hours and go from there. Mine turned out fine with 6 hours.

If you are using frozen broccoli florets, you do NOT need to defrost them prior to putting them in the crockpot. You add them in at the same time as you add the cornstarch slurry. As stated in the instructions, after you add the cornstarch slurry, you cook for 30 more minutes. This should be more than enough time to cook and defrost your broccoli florets.

If you're using fresh broccoli, you do NOT need to steam them prior to putting them in the crockpot. You add them in at the same time as you add the cornstarch slurry. Since you cook an additional 30 minutes, this will ensure that your fresh broccoli will be cooked through.
