Slow Cooker Easy Beef and Broccoli from the Betty Crocker site!

Slow Cooker Easy Beef and Broccoli

You Need:

1
pound beef boneless top round steak, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch cubes
1
jar (4.5 ounces) Green giant® sliced mushrooms, drained
1
medium onion, cut into wedges
1/2
cup condensed beef broth (from 10 1/2-ounce can)
3
tablespoons teriyaki baste and glaze (from 12-ounce bottle)
1
tablespoon sesame seed
1
teaspoon dark sesame oil, if desired
2/3
cup uncooked regular long-grain rice
1 1/3
cups water
2
tablespoons water
1
tablespoon cornstarch
2
cups Green Giant Select frozen broccoli florets (from 1-pound bag)

To Make:

  • 1Mix beef, mushrooms, onion, broth, teriyaki baste and glaze, sesame seed and sesame oil in 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker.
  • 2Cover and cook on low heat setting 8 to 10 hours.
  • 3About 35 minutes before serving, cook rice in 1 1/3 cups water as directed on package. Meanwhile, mix 2 tablespoons water and the cornstarch in small bowl. Stir cornstarch mixture and broccoli into beef mixture. Cover and cook on low heat setting 30 minutes or until broccoli is crisp-tender. Serve over rice.

Tips:

Be sure to cut the beef into pieces of the same size to ensure that all the beef cooks evenly and is tender.

When using a slow cooker, don't lift the lid during cooking unless necessary; removing the lid allows steam that is vital to the cooking process to escape.

  • PREP TIME 10 Min
  • TOTAL TIME 10 Hr 40 Min

yes, more so now then ever. I use it a few times a month, want to use it more though. My favorite thing to cook in it, is a roast! I know its an old standby but sooo good!
