Beef broth
1 cup
Soy sauce
½ cup
Brown sugar
⅓ cup

1 tablespoon
Garlic (minced)
4 cloves
Fresh ginger (minced)
2 teaspoons
2 tablespoons
¼ cup

Step-by-Step Guide:

  1. Prepare the Beef: Slice the beef into thin strips and place them in the crock pot.
  2. Make the Sauce: In a bowl, whisk together beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, honey, sesame oil, minced garlic, and minced ginger. This combination will create the sweet and tangy flavor profile.
  3. Cook the Beef: Pour the sauce mixture over the beef in the crock pot. Cook on low for 6 hours or on high for 3 hours, until the beef is tender.
  4. Add Broccoli: About 30 minutes before the end of cooking, add the broccoli florets to the crock pot. Adjust the time based on how tender you prefer the broccoli.
  5. Thicken the Sauce: Mix cornstarch with water to create a slurry. Stir this into the crock pot to thicken the sauce.
  6. Final Touches: Once the dish is ready, give it a good stir to ensure everything is well coated with the sauce.
  7. Garnish and Serve: Sprinkle with sesame seeds and sliced green onions for garnish. Serve your sweet and tangy beef and broccoli over cooked rice or noodles.
  8. Enjoy!: Your delicious, home-cooked sweet and tangy beef and broccoli is ready to be enjoyed.
