Beef and Broccoli

I have to share a couple of my new FAVORITE blogs! As you know, I have been rethinking my blog and it's focus and in the course of doing this I have been researching other blogs out there that I can relate to. In my search I came across the following ah-mazing bloggers:

A Cozy Kitchen

Edible Perspective

Table for Two

Never Homemaker


You can see the obviously common theme here. :D Anyway... I stumbled across Table for Two when I did a quick google search for an Asian Beef recipe. I have some angus beef and wanted to try something new. I found her Take Out, Fake Out Beef and Broccoli Recipe.  We made a few adjustments to suit our family and it is DELICIOUS! I actually want to make it again tonight. :D (Too bad we filled our red meat quote for the month... one or two meals max. ;D)

Crock Pot Beef with Broccoli


Ingredients:

1 lb. boneless, angus beef strips 
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce (we have a dark soy sauce from Wegmans that was perfect)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 tbsp. sesame oil (the original recipe called for 1 tbsp but we upped the ante)
1 tsp jarred crushed garlic
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tbsp. peanut butter
2 cups of washed broccoli crowns
Cooked Brown Rice

Instructions:


  1. Add the beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, and garlic to the crock pot and stir. 
  2. Add beef to the liquid and toss to coat.
  3. Turn crockpot on low and cook for 5 hours.
  4. When done, in a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch, peanut butter and cooking liquid to create a thickener, pour into crockpot, stir to mix well. 
  5. Add the broccoli crowns and toss to coat.
  6. Cook on low for an additional 30 minutes to thicken up the sauce.
  7. Serve over rice.

About this blog

Over 8 years we have struggled through 3 IUI's, 6 rounds of IVF, several RE's, hundreds of appointments and the loss of three little angels. Now we find ourselves the proud parents of two perfect little girls and a wonderful little boy!!

Both of our girls struggle with some disabilities but that won't keep us down. Each day has it's own brand of insanity but we love it. Most days I am more monkey wrangler than mother but I do the best I can. Todays goal - getting to tomorrow.
