This easy Crockpot Beef and Broccoli dish will be your favorite easy takeout night dinner recipe. It is simple and easy to make and you can leave the Chinese restaurant behind!
We love making our own version of a homemade takeout night at home.
If you have been around here for any length of time, you have heard me bragging about my homemade sweet and sour sauce.
Whenever we have takeout night, I pile it on with easy recipes like these Perfect Egg Rolls, my version of a Crab Rangoon, and you can always try your hand at making your own Fortune Cookies.
This recipe was originally published on September 4, 2012. It has recently been updated with new photos and cooking instructions.
This recipe uses beef consumme and if you are not sure where to find it in the store, it is on the soup aisle.
This recipe would pair perfectly with Baked Sweet and Sour Chicken or even my Chinese Lemon Chicken.
And — you really want to make it an authentic Chinese takeout night, grab a couple of these fun takeout boxes and a few pairs of chopsticks.
How to make Crockpot Beef and Broccoli
For starters, you are going to need a really good cut of beef — like a beef chuck roast. Slice it into thin strips, about 1″. This is easier to do if you let it freeze for a couple of hours before slicing.
Once you get the beef sliced, place in the crockpot.
In a small bowl, combine consomme, soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, and garlic. Pour over beef. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
At the end of your cook time, stir cornstarch and sauce in a cup until combined and then pour in the crockpot with the beef and sauce. Make sure to mix it together until it is all smooth.
Add broccoli to the crockpot. Stir to combine. (also add any other veggies at this time as well) and then let it cook for another 30 minutes. Serve over rice for the perfect weeknight meal.
