Recipe Wednesday

Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef

680g flank steak, thinly sliced and chopped into 2 inch pieces

1 cup beef broth

⅔ cup low sodium soy sauce

⅓ cup brown sugar

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon minced garlic

¼ teaspoon red chili flakes (optional)

4 cups broccoli florets

2 tablespoons corn starch + 4 tablespoons cold water

 

 

  1. Grease the inside of a slow cooker. Add steak, beef froth, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, and chili flakes. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or low 4-5 hours.
  2. 20 minutes before serving, uncover the slow cooker. In a small bowl whisk corn starch and water until dissolved. Add to slow cooker and stir. Cover and allow to cook another 20-25 minutes.
  3. Just before serving, place broccoli in a large tupperware, fill with ½ inch of water, and place the lid on in an off-set manner so that the container can vent. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Drain, stir broccoli into slow cooker, and serve.

 

Notes:

For a bit of a spicy kick, add a full 1-2 teaspoons of crushed red pepper flakes.
