Beef and Broccoli
1 lb boneless beef chuck roast, sliced into thin strips (we've used inexpensive steaks too, and it works great!)
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tbsp cornstarch
Fresh broccoli florets (as many as you'd like)
Hot cooked brown rice
Slice the beef into thin slices. Place it in the crockpot.
In a small bowl, whisk together the broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, and garlic. Pour over the beef, and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
At the end of the cook time, stir the cornstarch into a bowl with 2 tbsp of the sauce from the crockpot. Then pour the cornstarch/sauce mixture back into the crockpot. Mix it all together until smooth.
Add the broccoli to the crockpot and stir it to combine.
Turn the crockpot to high, cover and cook for 30 minutes.
Serve over hot cooked brown rice.
