This recipe was better than I thought it would be! I bought a very lean roast, and maybe cut it too small because the meat just fell apart after cooking in the crockpot. But it was full of flavor and definitely a recipe that we are keeping!
1 lb boneless beef chuck roast, cut into thin strips
1 can beef consumme
1/2 c. low-sodium soy sauce
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 tbsp sesame oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
Place the beef in the crockpot. (First, let me tell you how much I love the crockpot liners - definitely recommend because they make clean up so much easier!) In a small bowl you're going to combine the consumme, soy sauce, brown sugar, oil and garlic. Pour this over the beef and cook for 6-8 hours.
In a cup, stir in the corn starch and about 2 tbsps of the sauce from the crockpot, making sure it's cooled first and stirring until it's got a smooth consistency. Add this to the crockpot and stir well to combine. I still decided it wasn't 'thick enough' so I added more cornstarch directly into the crockpot. Just be careful in doing this because the cornstarch will just clump up if not well mixed.
Add the fresh broccoli to the crockpot and stir well to combine. Cover and cook for about 30 more minutes on high.
I served this with steamed white rice and some fresh edamame. Delicious, low-fat and protein packed meal! Definitely a keeper!
