Crock Pot Asian Broccoli Beef

Crock Pot Asian Broccoli Beef Dinner

This was my husbands birthday dinner last June. I wanted to surprise him with a totally unexpected, delicious meal. We haven’t had asian cooking in forever! His birthday is right after Father’s day, so sometimes, I have to reach a little higher for something special and new for him. For me, this dinner is that “Something a little higher”.Crock Pot Asian Broccoli Beef Dinner
We don’t do too many fancy meals at our house. I’m a simple cook. The spring is VERY busy times for us with all the outside work and our “Day” Jobs. This dinner is very easy and very tasty. A perfect choice for my hubby’s birthday which is fit in amongst all the rest of our activities. When you get to a ‘Certain Age’ birthdays take a back seat to outside work. And slip a little in the family’s priority list. At least that’s how it is here. We don’t do a big hoo-rah.
It’s definitely a  new idea at our house to turn an Asian recipe into a birthday dinner. He was delightfully surprised! I hope you like it too!

PictureHere are the bottled ingredients I’m using today to make this meal come alive. I found an excellent sesame oil with hot chili pepper infused in it. Yum! This dish has just a touch of spice with a bit of sweet to balance.  Fresh ginger root and young garlic shallots chopped all the way up the stem offer healthyzing and favor to this yummy dish. The broccoli can be either fresh or frozen, we have no garden broccoli this time of year so today I’m using frozen and it worked perfectly. Last time I used fresh and that was great too! Feel free to adjust the sauce ingredients to your taste. Spice it up or down, adjust the sweet as you like. That’s the fun of homemade!

Garlic shallot and ginger

Garlic and ginger add flavor and Zing to this meaty meal.

Crock Pot Asian broccoli beef dinner Recipe Notes:

Crock Pot Asian Beef Dinner is easily made. This is the second time I have made this recipe. I have to say we are loving it a whole lot this second time around! I’m glad I remembered to pull it out of the archives and dust it off. It needed a facelift with better pictures to show you just how yummy this dinner is!

A scrumptious meal

A word here, about the meat. I call for it raw in my recipe and have made this twice with excellent results. The meat is thoroughly cooked and beautifully flavored. If you want to brown it ahead that’s fine, but I do think the flavor of the sauce goes into the raw meat possibly better than it would a browned or seared meat. Just saying…to ensure a flavorful fully cooked meat make your meat strips thin.

The sauce is  made in the Crock Pot with the meat. Just leave out the last step of Adding the cornstarch until the last 30 minutes of cooking time. That’s when the broccoli goes in too, to keep it fresher. It’s lovely to have a bit of broccoli and garlic shallots for garnish as well.

I recommend brown rice quinoa blend to pour the Asian Beef over. Find the recipe here.  It’s also very good with organic Sona Masoori Rice from India which is pictured here.
 

NOTE: If you have leftovers, store the rice separately from the broccoli beef mixture. Otherwise the rice absorbs the intense flavor of the beef. The rice is best, next day, if stored separately in the fridge.
