Slow Cooker Asian Beef and Broccoli


Slow Cooker meals like this Asian Beef and Broccoli are just what I need on busy days.  I simply put everything into the slow cooker pot and let it cook away until it's time to eat dinner.  

I do add the broccoli in the last half hour of cooking so they are still nicely green and have a slight bite to them.  Then I simply cook up some rice and dinner is served. 

This is a great way to use less expensive cuts of beef like stew meat/chuck beef in stir fries.  The beef comes out so soft and tender after cooking low and slow in the the slow cooker. 

I love finding ways to use my slow cooker in during the week or even on the weekends to free up my time to spend with my family.  I also love how fuss-free this Asian dish is to get prepared.  I simply used the cut stew meat from the grocery store and a bag of cut broccoli florets.  This is one stir fry that did not require me to stand in the kitchen for a long time chopping and dicing a lot of ingredients.  It was as simple as tossing the ingredients it into the slow cooker and turning the button to "on".  Now that's my kind of cooking!
