What's Cooking Wednesday : Broccoli Beef

Image Via A Year of Slow Cooking

So... switching things up a bit, our healthy recipes have moved to Wednesday... but they are definately here to stay!

This week I was looking for a great Crockpot recipe... google of course helped me find a great blog "A Year of Slow Cooking" where you can find loads of Crockpot recipes that the blog owner - Stephanie - has actually made AND reviewed! I love hearing what other people think before investing my time... so I think that is a great feature for this site...

I snagged her Broccoli Beef recipe since it is one of my fiance's favorite meals when we order take out - hopefully this will save us some cash and calories!!


1 lb thin beef (Stephanie used Rib-eye)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 T white wine
2 T apple cider vinegar
1 T brown sugar
2 t sesame oil
2 cloves smashed and chopped garlic
1/2 t crushed red pepper flakes
1 bag thawed broccoli florets (to add later)


add the liquid to the crockpot
chop up your garlic, add to mixture
stir in spices

slice meat into thin strips
toss in the liquid and spice mixture to coat thoroughly

cook on low for 6-8 hours, depending on the cut of meat. Thicker pieces will take longer to tenderize.
an hour before serving, add entire bag of broccoli, cover and cook on high for another hour or so.

stir gingerly to coat broccoli

serve over steamed rice (optional)
Beats Take Out!!!
