Beef and broccoli ranks high on my list of takeout favorites. The savory combination of tender beef, sweet broccoli, and vibrant carrots cooked in an umami-rich garlicky sauce is pure comfort in a bowl — especially if I can eat it in my pajamas on the couch.
Homemade beef and broccoli from the slow cooker gives me the exact same satisfaction, as well as the ability to customize the sauce to my liking and use up beef and veggies that might be languishing in the fridge or freezer. Plus, the slow cooker does all the work of cooking the beef and vegetables for you, either while you cozy up on the couch or run errands. Here’s how you can make beef and broccoli at home that I promise you is even better than takeout.
2 tbsp cornstarch
2 tbsp water
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 lb beef round steak / strips
4 cup broccoli
1 small onion
2 each carrots
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tbsp corn starch
1/2 cup water
Coating: In a bowl, combine cornstarch, water, and garlic powder. Mix until smooth. Toss beef in this mixture.
Sauce: In a bowl, combine soy, brown sugar, ground ginger, corn starch, and water. Mix until smooth.
In a large skillet or wok over medium high heat, stir-fry beef in 1 tablespoon oil until beef is browned. Remove and keep warm.
Stir-fry brocolli, carrots, and onion in the remaining oil. Add the beef and sauce.
Cook about 3 minutes, continously stirring to ensure even cooking.
Serve over rice.
