I have made a beef and broccoli recipe before on my blog and it was really good.  It was a little more work but it was still delicious.  But there is something about slow cooking something all day in a crockpot.  The beef literally just melted in my mouth because it was so tender.   And the sauce that it slow cooked in all day was so amazing.  This is one of the recipes that I post that I hope everyone tries.  Just thinking about how good this tasted is making me drool.  I feel like I never have to go eat out because I keep finding restaurant quality recipes to make at home.  This.was.awesome.

Rating: 5 stars  Difficulty of Recipe: 2 stars
Things that I changed:  I kept it the same.
Things that I would do differently next time:  I would add more meat.  The recipe calls for about a pound.  Once everything is cooked it shrunk and there was more sauce to meat ratio.  I would add 1 1/2 to 2 pounds next time I make it.
Will I make it again?  For sure

Ingredients:
1 lb. boneless, beef chuck roast, sliced into thin strips
1 cup beef consumme or beef broth
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1 tbsp. sesame oil
3 garlic cloves minced
2 tbsp cornstarch
Frozen Broccoli Florets (I used one bag)
White or brown rice, cooked

1. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the beef consume, soy sauce, dark brown sugar, sesame oil, and garlic.

2.  Lay the beef strips in the crockpot and pour the sauce over, tossing the strips to coat.
3. Turn the crockpot on low and cook for about 6 hours.  Mine was ready at 5.  You don't want to cook the beef too long or it will start to shred.
4. When it is just about done, take 4 Tbsp of the sauce and whisk it in a small bowl with the cornstarch.  I added about 2 extra tsps of cornstarch to thicken it up a little bit more.  Slowly stir this into the crockpot.  I added the broccoli in at this point so that it could get heated through.  You want to let it cook an additional 30 minutes so that the sauce can thicken and frozen broccoli can cook.  You don't want to add the broccoli until the very end or it will be mushy. 
5.  Serve over white rice and enjoy!!
