Crock Pot Beef and Broccoli

Crock Pot Beef and Broccoli

I love Chinese food and always have. I don't eat it very often but I do love to make it. Chinese food can be expensive so learning how to make it at home can save you a lot of money. 

If you love Chinese food as well check out these other recipes I have done. Kung Pao Chicken, Oriental Chicken Salad, Fried Rice, Beef Cilantro and Onion

This is a great dish that is easy to make cooks right in the crock pot. You don't have to saut√© the meat in a pan first just put it in the crock pot. 


1 cup of beef broth
1/4 cup of soy sauce
1/4 cup of teriyaki sauce (Kikkoman)
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1 T of sesame oil
1 T minced garlic
2 lbs of boneless beef chuck roast, thinly sliced
2 T of cornstarch
2 heads of broccoli, cut into florets


Mix (I just put it in the crock pot and mix it) together the beef broth, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, sugar, sesame oil and garlic. Cut up meat into thin slices and add to the crock pot. Cook on low for 1 1/2 hours. Add in the broccoli now and in a small bowl mix together a 1/4 cup of water and 2 T of cornstarch and pour into crock pot and mix well. Cover crock pot and cook for an additional 30 minutes. It may take longer depending on your crock pot and how it heats up. After 30 minutes just keep checking until done.   Serve immediately over rice. Pour some of the juice from the crock pot on top. 

I like to add green onions on the top for extra flavor when serving with a little salt and pepper and soy sauce.

 Hope you enjoy this delicious meal. My family loved it.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. That looks lovely and quite easy to make, even for someone as useless in the kitchen as me! Stephen :o)

    1. Super simple! Those are the best recipes in my book. Hope you try it and enjoy it.

  2. Looks great, Dori! But how much beef broth?

  3. I was wondering also, how much beef broth? Also, it only cooks for a total of 2 hours?

  4. Sorry about that. I fixed it. 1 cup of beef broth. It does only take 2 hours but it depends on the crock pot. Mine took about 2 1/2 hours.

  5. You put the broccoli in at the beginning?

    1. You put the broccoli in after the meat has cooked for the hour and a half.

  6. Sounds like something I would love...will try it.

  7. This is a great way to prepare a chuck roast - the dish was very tasty. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
