What Is The Beef Used In This Recipe
I bought a beef roast that I snagged on sale and sliced up into thin strips. Check with the butcher at the grocery store. A lot of times they will slice it however you request for free.
This will save you even more time for prepping if you have them slice it while you finish up your shopping.
You are more than welcome to use other cuts of roast, steaks, etc. They all work great. I just love the marble of the fat paired with the meat from a chuck roast. Plus they are affordable.
- Roast thinly sliced
- Beef broth, we bought low sodium
- Brown Sugar
- Soy Sauce, low sodium
Basic ingredients that you might already have on hand in your pantry and fridge.
How to Make
The full directions are in the printable recipe card below. Here is a quick run over of how to prep your slow cooker beef recipe.
Start by making sure your roast is thinly sliced into strips. Once you have it all cut up toss in your slow cooker.
Now grab a bowl and work on making the sauce. Mix together broth, soy sauce, brown sugar and garlic and pour that into your slow cooker.
Cook for around 5 hours, then remove around 1/3 cup of the sauce. Whisk in your cornstarch in that 1/3 cup of sauce.
Pour back into the slow cooker along with the broccoli. Finish cooking and then pair with your favorites. Rice is our go-to way to serve up this dish.
