Ingredients

Units Scale

1.5 lbs (680g) beef sirloin or flank steak, thinly sliced
– 1 cup beef broth
– ½ cup low sodium soy sauce
– ⅓ cup brown sugar
– 1 tablespoon sesame oil
– 3 cloves garlic, minced
– 2 tablespoons cornstarch
– 2 tablespoons water
– 4 cups broccoli florets
– Sesame seeds (for garnish)
– Cooked rice (for serving)


Instructions

Thinly slice the beef against the grain. This ensures tenderness.
– In a mixing bowl, combine beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and minced garlic. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved.
– Place the sliced beef in the slow cooker and pour the sauce over it. Stir to coat the beef evenly.

2. **Cooking in the Slow Cooker:**
– Cook on low heat for 4-5 hours or on high heat for 2-3 hours. Cooking time may vary depending on your slow cooker.
– About 30 minutes before the cooking time is up, mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl until smooth. Pour this mixture into the slow cooker and stir well. This will help thicken the sauce.

3. **Add Broccoli:**
– Add broccoli florets to the slow cooker during the last 30 minutes of cooking. Stir to combine with the beef and sauce. This ensures the broccoli is cooked but still retains some crunchiness.

4. **Serve:**
– Once the cooking time is complete and the beef and broccoli are cooked to your liking, serve the dish over cooked rice.
– Garnish with sesame seeds for extra flavor and presentation.

Enjoy your Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli! It’s a delicious and comforting meal perfect for busy days.
