How to make Beef and Broccoli in SLOW COOKER:
- After spraying your slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray (or using a slow cooker liner) place your sliced beef in the bottom.
- In a medium bowl, mix beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and garlic cloves together.
- Pour over the beef strips in the crock pot and cook on low heat for 6-8 hours (the beef will be so tender that it will fall apart when you touch it).
- In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch and cold water.
- Mix in with the beef and liquid that is in the slow cooker.
- Add broccoli pieces to the slow cooker, put the lid back on, and cook for an additional 30 minutes on high heat.
- Serve over hot, cooked rice.
