Super easy Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef! The sauce is AMAZING – so much better tasting and healthier than takeout!
1 1/2 pounds flank steak, thinly sliced and chopped into 2 inch pieces
1 cup beef broth
2/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes (optional)
4 cups broccoli florets
2 tablespoons cornstarch
4 tablespoons cold water
Grease the inside of a slow cooker. Add steak, beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, garlic, and chili flakes. Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or low 4-5 hours.
Minutes before serving, uncover the slow cooker. In a small bowl, whisk corn starch and water until dissolved. Add to slow cooker and stir. Cover and allow to cook another 20-25 minutes.
Just before serving, place broccoli in a large tupperware, fill with 1/2 inch of water, and place the lid on in an off-set manner so that the container can vent. Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Drain, stir broccoli into slow cooker, and serve.
