Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

2 lbs sirloin steak or boneless beef chuck roast, sliced thin
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp. sesame oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 Tbsp. cornstarch
4 Tbsp. water
1 head of broccoli, cut into florets
Hot cooked rice for 4 for serving

Whisk together the broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and garlic in the crock pot or slow cooker.
Place slices of beef in the liquid and toss to coat. Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 4 hours.
After 4 hours, whisk together cornstarch and water in small bowl. Pour into the crock pot and stir to mix well. Add the broccoli and gently stir to combine. Replace lid on cooker and cook 30 minutes until broccoli is tender and sauce is thickened.
