Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli

Skip the takeout! Dinner is easy and delicious with this Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli recipe!

Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli


As much as I love our house and where we live, it does have its drawbacks. For one, we don't have any sort of pizza delivery where we live. It was a huge adjustment not being able to pick up the phone or go online and have food delivered. That also means that when we want to go anywhere or do anything, we have a little bit of a drive. In this case, thank goodness for my slow cooker!!

Like many areas across the country, Phoenix took a big hit when the housing market crashed. Although the market was rebounding when we bought our home, we were fortunate enough to be able to get into our house while the market was still low. We bought in an area where half-built houses were literally abandoned. We have hundreds of empty lots in our subdivision.

The market is FINALLY in a place where the builders are back and people are buying new houses in our area ... which means we have new construction coming into our subdivision. I admit it's kinda exciting to see the growth. Call it selfish, but I think I am most looking forward to having businesses move in ... a closer grocery store, gas station, and everything that comes with a growing housing market.

Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli

Needless to say, I am like everyone else. Sometimes, I need a night off from cooking or at least, easy dinners. Thankfully, I keep a well-stocked pantry and a few quick meal ideas in the freezer! Hello, frozen pizza, pre-made chicken strips, and frozen lasagna!! 😉 In addition, until we have some businesses move in, I often recreate some of our favorite takeout dishes at home.

This Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli recipe is one of my favorites because it is so easy to make. While I prefer fresh broccoli, frozen broccoli works just as well - just be sure to thaw and drain it. Sometimes, I like to make this a bit spicier by adding more Sriracha or a sprinkle of pepper flakes. 

Also, a tip to cut the meat super thin - pop it in the freezer for 20-30 minutes before slicing.

  3. That sounds so good! I must admit...I have never heard of Sriracha sauce (Rooster sauce). Can you find it next to other sauces like Soy sauce? Glad I came across your blog from the hop.

    Have a great evening! Julie from Stlavonlady - a cat, girl, man and me!

  7. I never thought of doing Chinese in a crock pot. So I'll give it a try, I have a wok but cleaning it isn't my favorite thing to do, and no good Chinese restaurants around here. Sounds good!

    I am visiting from Skip to my Lou, and I have been looking through all your projects. You have some great, great stuff here! I would love it if you'd come over and link up some of your OLDER posts (that's right, Older). I host and oldie's link party, where we strive to give a little more exposure to those old, awesome posts that we were writing when only our moms and husbands were reading our blogs (or was that just me?!?)
    So, consider stopping by!
