Picture of Crock Pot Beef Broccoli
My favorite Chinese food, next to Chow Mein, is Beef Broccoli.  I really love Beef Broccoli.  The best beef broccoli I have ever eaten was at a Chinese/Mexican Restaurant in Mexico (truth).  On the other hand, my Hubby hates Chinese food.  He hates those things called “vegetables” and especially Broccoli.  He is one of those people that can taste the bitter in broccoli, so I get all of his broccoli when we eat out!  (YEAH!).  He would prefer that I never make it.  So when he is out of town I have Chinese food, especially Beef Broccoli.  Well this weekend he is out of town and I am going to make Beef Broccoli, so I will be extra happy.  This is one way to make it.

Step 1:

Made this tonight. Turned out very good, definitely making it again later. I don't think I've ever enjoyed broccoli this much :) Thanks for sharing!

Hello! This looks amazing! How vital is the brown sugar? I'm trying to lessen the sugar in my diet.

The brown sugar enhances the flavor. You could reduce it by half or leave it out all together. It will be less sweet, but if you are used to less sweet, that should be okay. Thanks for commenting.

Do you use frozen or fresh broccoli?

I had fresh so I used fresh. Frozen would work out okay too. Thanks for commenting.

Came out EXCELLENT. My family kept saying "Mom, we love you". I usually only get that when I cook something good, so thanks :-)

You're welcome.
very good. I added a medium sweet onion in the beginning as well and about half way into tje process I added halved button mushrooms. that added quite a bit of flavor and texture to the dish. the dish is great as it is, I just like onions and mushrooms.
