I have a few crockpot recipes that always seem to end up in regular rotation. I love posting them here to share with you because they tried and true recipes. It also makes it easier for me to share them with friends and family. Imagine my surprise when I went to go share my super easy Crockpot Beef and Broccoli Recipe and realized I had never posted it on the blog.
I guess that was my face palm moment of the week. So, tonights dinner was Crockpot Beef and Broccoli so I could share it with you. This recipe does not take long at all to make and it always turns out amazing!
Place your cut up flank steak, onions, and garlic in the crockpot. Mix up the soy sauce, chicken broth, brown sugar, oil and pepper flakes. Pour it over the steak. Place the lid on and cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 2 hours.
When it is done, stir in corn starch to thicken sauce. Place rice on plate. Top with broccoli and then scoop the beef and sauce over top. Garnish with additional red pepper flakes if desired.
