Make your favorite take-out supper with all fresh ingredients with this easy recipe for slow cooker beef with broccoli.


  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak, cut into strips
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium soy sauce (don’t use the full sodium stuff, it will be too salty!)
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 cups broccoli (I like to use both the florets and stalks, but you can use florets only if you like)


  1. Place beef in slow cooker.
  2. Mix up broth, soy sauce, sesame oil and brown sugar and pour over beef. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours until meat is tender.
  3. Remove about 1/4 cup of the liquid from the slow cooker and whisk cornstarch into it. Return the mixture to the slow cooker and stir. Add broccoli and replace lid.
  4. Increase heat to high and cook for another 20 minutes or until broccoli is tender. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve!
