Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef

Round two of recreating yummy Panda Express recipes! I just love making really good and really easy meals. The first time I made this, I made it with some "pot roast steak" which whatever it was, was not a good cut of steak. If you make it with a good cut of rump or skirt steak, this meal is a good feeling!

Elevate with a nice glass or chardonnay and eating this meal gives me simple good feelings like...

Lying in bed on a stormy morning and not having to get up.
Being finished with something you really dread doing. It's a huge weight off your mind and a sense of accomplishment rolled into one.
Waking up feeling rested. You feel like you can take anything on that day.

Having the song on the radio finish at the exact instant you pull into your driveway and turn off the car.
Hearing that gentle crumbly sound your vacuum makes when it picks something up.
Fresh sheets on your bed.

Taking off your ski boots off after a long day in the mountains.
Taking your first gulp of water during a hot day.
Going to bed after taking a shower.

Oh you want the recipe?! Well...okay!



Ingredients:

1.5 pounds of pot roast steak, thinly sliced
1 (10 ounce) can of beef broth
2/3 soy sauce
1/2 cup of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of red chili flakes
4 cups of broccoli florets
2 tablespoons of corn starch and 4 tablespoons of cold water

Directions:

Mix together beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder, and red chili flakes. Pour over steak in slow cooker on low for 4-5 hours.

Once done, whisk together water and corn starch in a bowl and add to slow cooker and stir. Cook for another 30 minutes.

Just before serving, place broccoli in large container and fill with 1/2 inch of water and place lid over lightly so broccoli can steam. Microwave for 3 minutes. Drain and then stir broccoli into slow cooker. Then serve~

  1. This is a dish I've never had for some reason, but would probably love it & love even more that you can make it in a slow cooker!
