When I think of beef and broccoli, I always think of traditional Chinese stir fry. But this tasty dish is made in a slow cooker or crock pot, and offers a whole new way to enjoy it!
I really just adore crock pot recipes because they are so incredibly easy and so tasty, and this beef and broccoli recipe is no exception.
The slow cooker really makes your meat so tender and juicy. It’s definitely a dish worth trying out. This is one dish that is a staple on my list of Crock Pot Recipes.
