We prepared this dish instead of ordering takeout, and it was delicious!



Recommended serving size: 4–6
The following ingredients are needed: - 1/2 pound of thinly sliced beef chuck roast
- 1/2 cup of low-sodium soy sauce - 1 cup of beef broth
-1/4 cup of packed brown sugar
- Minced garlic, three cloves
- Sesame oil, 2 teaspoons
In a 2-quart measuring cup, combine the cornstarch and water.
- Broccoli florets, 4 cups
- 1 cup of cooked white rice
- Serve with sliced green onions and toasted sesame seeds for an optional garnish.
What to do:
1. Layer your slow cooker with the thinly cut meat.
Pour the beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, and sesame oil into a bowl and mix them together with a whisk. Add this mixture to the slow cooker with the meat.
3. Simmer, covered, over low heat for 4 hours, or until meat is tender and cooked through.
4. In a small dish, mix the cornstarch and water until the cornstarch is dissolved, about 30 minutes before serving. This will help thicken the sauce, so stir it into the slow cooker.
5. Top the meat and sauce with the broccoli florets. Once the broccoli reaches the doneness you want, cover and continue cooking on low for 30 more minutes.
6. If you'd like, you may top it with white rice and sesame seeds or green onions.
Tips and Variations:
Saves Time An easy way to avoid cutting broccoli is to use frozen florets and toss them into the slow cooker.
-- Delightful You may modify the amount of brown sugar to taste if you want it slightly sweeter. On the other side, if you want a less sugary version, you may begin by adding less sugar and then add more as required.
- Protein Options: For a more tender cut of beef, use chuck roast. If you're short on time, you may also use flank steak or pre-cut stir-fry beef. 
- For an extra kick, try topping it with some sriracha or red pepper flakes; they'll give the meal a wonderful warm zing that even the most mild-mannered palate will adore.
Vegetables Abound: Who doesn't like broccoli? For an equally delicious vegetable dish, try substituting snap peas, bell peppers, or tiny carrots.
