While I was away on a girl’s trip a few weeks ago, my husband ordered Chinese take out and my oldest son fell head over heels in love with Beef & Broccoli. He wouldn’t stop talking about it, so I knew I needed to make an at home version that could go into frequent dinner rotation (and that I could feel good about serving). Like anything, take out is fine in moderation, but I always question Chinese take out. It just gets thrown together so fast and never keeps anyone full for long which leads me to wonder….what ARE we eating?! Anyway, homemade is always better than take out and this recipe will leave you full and satisfied! Make it and let me know what you think!

How To Make Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli

  • To start, slice your beef round steak into thin strips and place in bottom of crockpot.
  • In a small mixing bowl, whisk together broth, coconut aminos, coconut sugar, sesame oil and crushed garlic cloves (if you aren’t buying the pre-crushed garlic cloves in the freezer section, I suggest you start doing that ASAP).slow cooker beef
  • Pour mixture over beef and cook on low for 5 hours.
  • After 5 hours, your beef will be fully cooked, remove beef from crockpot, leaving juice behind.
  • Mix arrowroot flour into juice mixture and whisk well, until flour is dissolved (this will thicken the juice).
  • Add frozen broccoli into the juice and then pour meat back in too.
  • Cook for 45-60 more minutes, till broccoli is done.
