Easy Dinner!

  • Easy prep! Crockpot beef and broccoli is the perfect recipe to pop in the slow cooker while everyone’s unwinding from the day!
  • Batch cooking fave! Slow-cooker beef and broccoli is easy to double up and freeze for future meals!
  • Crowd pleaser! This is a great meal to make for get-togethers and kid sleepovers because the meat and veggies are in one pot and it’s got that take-out flavor! Serve from the Crockpot with a side of rice and some crab & cream cheese filled crescent rolls!

Ingredients and Variations

Beef – No need for pricey cuts here! The best beef is pre-cut stew meat pieces, flank steak, or eye of round. If you get a whole flank steak, be sure to cut across the grain. This breaks down the connective tissue and makes the meat super tender! If you’ve got leftover steak pieces, chicken breasts, or even meatballs, they can be used as well!

Broccoli – Remove any small leaves and chop off any discolored parts of the broccoli. Cut the pieces into small, bite-sized florets. Frozen broccoli doesn’t even have to be thawed, just toss it in!

Sauce – Add more or less brown sugar and chili flakes to suit your tastes. If time is short, use a ready-made bottle of teriyaki or sweet and sour sauce! Fresh ginger and garlic really give this dish its signature flavor so it’s worth using!

Variations – Switch out or add other healthy veggies like cauliflower, whole small mushrooms, zucchini, red or green bell peppers, or Brussels sprouts. Even a bag of frozen veggies will make this a new recipe every time!

How to Make Crockpot Beef and Broccoli

  1. Place all ingredients except cornstarch and broccoli in the slow cooker.
  2. Cook until beef is fork tender.
  3. Combine cornstarch with water and whisk into beef mixture.
  4. Add broccoli, cover, and cook until broccoli is tender and crisp.

Tips for Success

  • Pop the meat in the freezer for 30-45 minutes for easier handling and slicing!
  • Cut the meat and broccoli into bite-sized pieces so a little of both gets into every bit!
  • Serve over white or brown rice, teriyaki noodles, or mashed potatoes. For a low-carb version, serve beef and broccoli alongside roasted cauliflower.

Time-Saving Tips

Prep the meat and broccoli in advance and keep refrigerated until ready to use. Tenderize the meat even more by marinating it in honey garlic sauce.

    This is the second time I’ve made this. It is so good and my grandson’s love it. This time I added diced onions. I did this because my oldest grandson’s doesn’t really like veggies. UT he likes the meat and sauce. Will be making this many more times.

    Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly as written except I used frozen broccoli instead of fresh because it’s what I had. This recipe will definitely be made again and again

    1. So happy to hear how much you loved it! Thanks for letting us know about the frozen broccoli.
