Crockpot Broccoli Beef

From Crockpot Broccoli Beef
My hubby loves broccoli beef, and since he started hanging out with me, he's been deprived. See, most Asian dishes are laden with nuts and sesame... big no, nos, in our house. Frog Prince has graciously given up nuts to hang out with me :) So, I thought I'd try to come up with a recipe that would allow him to enjoy one of his favorite dishes. I'm not sure how it compares to the "real thing", but, it's pretty tasty.

Crockpot Broccoli Beef - Snow White

1 lb. beef, chopped into cubes and trimmed of fat
1/2 C beef broth, low sodium
1/4 C soy sauce
1 T dried, minced onion
1 T brown sugar
2 large garlic cloves, minced
8 oz. mushrooms, canned or fresh (if desired)
1 (16oz) bag of frozen broccoli, thawed
2 T water
1 T cornstarch

Combine broth and soy sauce in a crockpot, add onion, brown sugar and garlic. Stir in beef cubes. Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours (or on high for 4-6 hours).

  1. Okay..I am so glad you stopped by cause now I have found your blog..I love it. I am sure I will be stalking it for at a least a couple days checking everything out. Have a great weekend.

  2. p.s...what cut of beef did you use for this?

  3. I used beef cut for stew... I usually by a boneless, lower-fat cut and chop it myself, but I found a great sale at Kroger this week on beef already cubed, so I used that.

  4. This s definitely one I'm going to try. Thanks for sharing!


  5. Oh my word, I'm bookmarking and putting it down on the next menu.

  6. Hi!
    I found your blog a few weeks ago and I've been loving it! :)

    When would I put the mushrooms in for this recipe? I may have missed it, but I didn't see in the directions when they should go in.

    Thanks! Keep those recipes coming!

  7. Another win in our household! It was great!

  8. Just wondering when I should add the mushrooms. With the beef or the broccoli.

    Want to make it tomorrow and seeing as my hubby loves mushroom and I found some on sale going to use them.
