Beef & Broccoli Slow Cooker

cheap dinner ideas for beef

Lately I have been all about slow cooker meals. I think it is a combination of how easy they are and the fall weather. I love preparing a crock-pot recipe and let it cook while I am at work. I recently discovered a recipe for beef and broccoli on bsrecipe. I had most of the ingredients and knew this would be a great recipe to try out. It really could not be any easier to prepare and make. It makes a lot of sauce, so if you want less sauce, then I would half the recipe. Otherwise, make enough rice to accommodate the sauce. There will be leftovers! The beef and broccoli tasted better than a restaurant or buffet. I am a huge Chinese food fan and I would eat this any day rather than the restaurant, it is THAT GOOD!
