Make Something Monday:: Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli
One of my favorite foodie bloggers is Chungah, over at Damn Delicious. I ran across her site a few years ago and have been powering my way through her recipe drawer, one “Quick & Easy” page at a time. Not only do I respect her ability to use a curse word in her blog title, but I appreciate her ability to make recipes that are DOABLE and MANAGEABLE for the common mom. And if I could think of any phrase to describe me, it would, in fact be: “Common mom.”
This common mom tested the Beef & Broccoli recipe last year. Here is what I knew at the time:
1.) I like Chinese food.
2.) I like dishes that cook themselves in the crock pot while I work.
3.) My kids weren’t overly offended by any of the main ingredients, so why not give it a shot?
After trying out the dish, this is what I learned:
1.) I LOVE Chinese food that is cheap and good…. And I can now be proud to own such ingredients as sesame oil and oyster sauce.
2.) Did I mention I love dishes that cook themselves in the crock pot while I’m at work??
3.) My picky eater went back for seconds… And THIRDS, of this dish! SCORE!!! (Also my allergy kiddo can eat this dish with no problems – DOUBLE SCORE!!)
Here it is folks. I hope you enjoy it as much as we continue to!
In just a few easy steps, this dish cooks itself and then waits for you to arrive home to a yummy smelling kitchen and no dirty dishes in the sink!!
The finished product…. YUMMO!
