Primal Crockpot Beef & Broccoli w/ Cauliflower Rice

I’ve tried a couple Beef & Broccoli recipes before finding this beauty.  The previous attempts all yielded very tough beef, something I can’t stand.  This recipe, though, is really yummy – great sauce for the “rice” and tender, chewable beef.

Crockpot Beef & Broccoli

1 lb of beef, cut into strips.  I buy stir fry beef.

1 cup of beef consomme  (I have used beef broth successfully as well)

1/2 cup of soy sauce

1/3 cup of coconut sugar (I buy this)

1 T of sesame seed oil

3 garlic cloves, minced

about 1 teaspoon of arrowroot powder

2 T of beef broth after the meat has cooked

3 broccoli crowns, cut into small florets, & steamed

Place beef, sliced, in crockpot.  In a small bowl, mix together consommé, soy sauce, coconut sugar, sesame oil, & garlic.  Pour mixture over beef.

Cook on low for 4-6 hours (depending on how hot your crockpot runs).

Once beef is cooked, cut up & steam your broccoli florets.  I cooked mine for about 8-9 minutes.

While your broccoli is steaming, remove 2 T of beef liquid.  Stir in 1 tsp of arrowroot powder until well mixed.  Add that back into the crockpot and stir until thickened.  Add more arrowroot powder if necessary.

Add in broccoli and stir.  Cook about 10 minutes, to incorporate flavors.

Serve over cauliflower rice.  Enjoy!

  1. there is a trick to getting tender beef when stir-frying, and that is to marinate it before hand or to use the trick of baking soda! you can coat it for a few minutes, wash it off properly, then marinate!

    but don’t leave it in the baking soda for too long, as the beef will get mushy!
