Make Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli – it’s easier and cheaper than take out! Makes a great freezer meal and is super fast to prep.
Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli came around for a couple of reasons. One of the main ones? It freezes beautifully. Second? Because it’s EASY! Winner!
I combined a few different recipes (really picked and chose) which parts of their sauce I wanted! Turned out pretty good in my opinion.
There are a few notes for you to read though! 1 – as with all slow cooker recipes the sauce for Beef and Broccoli comes out very thin. If you want you can make it thicker on the stove with some corn starch – I did not and it was still delish. 2 – I like very tiny chopped broccoli – not big chunks (I’m a weirdo I know).
I used a 10 ounce bag of chopped frozen broccoli. It required VERY little cooking time. If you want the broccoli florets then my suggestion would be to buy a steam in bag, microwave it and then add for a couple of minutes. You could add it for longer to the slow cooker too instead of steaming it in the microwave – your choice.
Hope you enjoy it like I did!
