Winter may be cold and a bit miserable but when you have a warm and comforting slow-cooked meal to come home to in the evening, it almost makes it all worthwhile!

Slow Cookers / Crockpots

I’ve been a massive fan of slow cookers since my now husband first introduced me to his when we moved in together. I’m not sure he actually ever used it but I was hooked pretty much straight away!

You can use a slow cooker for so many different types of foods!

But delicious warming casseroles has to be my absolute favourite and this Beef & Broccoli is one of my current favourites to cook in it.

This slow cooker beef & broccoli is perfect for busy weekdays.

You can chuck all the ingredients in to cook before you leave the house in the morning.

I’ve timed myself and I can get everything weighed, measured, chopped and in the slow cooker in just 3 minutes.

When you get in from a busy day at work or out-and-about all you need to do is add the cornflour (cornstarch) to thicken the sauce and steam the broccoli.

My Top Tip

I prefer to cook the broccoli separately and then add it to the beef and the sauce at the end.

This helps keep its lovely bright vibrant green colour.

You can add the broccoli to the rest of the ingredients in the slow cooker, but it will lose its colour and go a little mushy!

Description

A super simple and delicious Beef and Broccoli recipe. This is so easy to make, simply chuck all the ingredients into the slow cooker or crockpot and leave it to cook all day.

Ingredients

  • 500g / 1 lb casserole beef steak or flank steak
  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 400ml / 1.5 cups beef stock (I use low sodium stock)
  • 60ml / 0.25 cup soy sauce (I use low sodium soy sauce)
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp cornflour or cornstarch
  • 250g / 9oz chopped broccoli
  • To serve: boiled rice, chopped spring onions and sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Add the beef, onion, garlic, beef stock, soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar and honey to the slow cooker and mix. Pop on the lid and cook on low for 4 – 5 hours (or on high for 3 hours).
  2. Use a ladle to remove about 2 large spoons of the liquid from the slow cooker into a small bowl. Add the cornflour to the bowl and whisk with a fork until there are no lumps. Pour this mixture back into the slow cooker, mix well and continue to cook for another 30 – 40 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  3. Steam the broccoli (use a steamer or cook in the microwave) and then add it to the slow cooker and mix.
  4. Serve immediately with boiled rice and garnish with chopped spring onions and sesame seeds.
