I love setting up a meal and just forgetting about it. you have the freedom to do whatever you want while a delicious meal is cooking away!
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
4 tbsp. sauce (from the crockpot after dish is cooked)
Frozen broccoli florets, as many as desired. (i used fresh) add them in at the same time as you add the cornstarch slurry. cook 30 more mins.
White rice, cooked
In the insert of the crockpot, whisk together beef consume, soy sauce, dark brown sugar, sesame oil, and garlic.
Gently place your slices of beef in the liquid and toss to coat.
Turn crockpot on low and cook for 6 hours.
When done, in a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and cooking liquid to create a slurry, pour into crockpot, stir to mix well. Cook on low for an additional 30 minutes to thicken up the sauce.
Toss in your broccoli florets then serve hot over white rice. I think it would be good to add any other veggie such as carrots, mushroom, onion, zucchini, bell pepper, celery, asparagus.
