Slow cooker beef and broccoli

Easy Chinese Beef and Broccoli recipe

This Chinese Beef and Broccoli recipe is easy to make, ready to go in about 30 minutes, and I'm convinced it's even better than the restaurant version! | gimmesomeoven.comHere’s a cute pic I snapped of Barclay out in Si Si’s garden before we made our way to her actual broccoli. These two. ♥

Alright, back to this recipe. I’ve gotta say — I’ve had some good beef and broccoli in my day, but probably more not-so-good beef and broccoli in my day.

Oof. Has anyone else had the same experience?? I feel like this dish starts with so much potential, based around two of my favorite ingredients. (Here’s lookin’ at you fresh broccoli, and — my forever guilty pleasure — tender steak.) But after that, it seems like so many restaurants just phone in the sauce, making what could be an awesome dish instead totally bland and soggy and “meh”.

Not acceptable.

This Chinese Beef and Broccoli recipe is easy to make, ready to go in about 30 minutes, and I'm convinced it's even better than the restaurant version! | gimmesomeoven.comMy homemade version, on the other hand, is everything I always hope that broccoli and beef will be when I see if on a menu. It’s made with tender-crisp broccoli (and lots of it), marinated and perfectly-cooked flank steak, and lots of sauce that’s actually bursting with savory flavors. So good!

And even better? It can be on the table easily in 30 minutes. (Or if you’re a super-efficient multi-tasker, closer to 20!)

So who’s ready for some beef and broccoli?

I thought so. :)
