It's getting to be that time of the year when crock pot recipes come in handy and make the house smell great when you get home from work. This recipe is one I catered to our family's likes after reviewing a half a dozen on line. Many beef and broccoli recipes call for sesame oil. It's bit strong for our family, but I added a little Worcestershire sauce which I thought enhanced the recipe.
1 ½ lbs. boneless beef chuck roast, sliced into thin strips
1 15 ounce can beef broth
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 tablespoons cornstarch
4 tablespoons sauce from the crock pot after being cooked
16 oz.Broccoli florets
Put the beef in the crock pot. Mix the beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil and garlic together, then pour over the beef.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours.
After that time, take 1/2 of sauce from the crock pot, mix with cornstarch and pour back in the crock pot. Add broccoli florets as well, stir and cook an additional 30 minutes or until the sauce thickens.
Serve over rice.
