Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli

This tasty slow cooker beef and broccoli recipe can be pulled together quickly for a fast and easy weeknight meal. To avoid mushy vegetables, don’t add them until 15 to 20 minutes before this dish is done cooking.

The frozen broccoli doesn’t need to be defrosted prior to cooking, so feel free to add them directly from the bag into your slow cooker. Actual cooking times will be varying by individual unit, so be sure to watch closely the first time you prepare this recipe to achieve desired results.

Ingredients for this Recipe :

  • 1½ lbs. beef stew meat, cut into chunks
  • 1½ cup beef stock
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste

  • 1 [14-oz.] bag frozen broccoli florets
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut in short, thin strips
  • 3 cup brown rice, cooked
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Tip :

Adding the vegetables 15-20 minutes before done cooking will yield crisp-tender results. Cook longer for softer veggies.

How to Make Beef and Broccoli :

Step 1:

Add beef stew chunks to 5 or 6-quart slow cooker crock.

Step 2:

In a medium glass or another non-reactive bowl, whisk beef stock, garlic, soy sauce, honey, and sesame oil to combine. Season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Pour mixture on top of beef. Cover and cook for 3-4 hours on high or 6-7 hours on low.
