Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef

Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef. Super tender steak cooked low and slow for 5 hours! Serve over a bowl of rice or noodles!


I love making takeout dishes at home and this Slow Cooker Broccoli Beef has to be one of my favorites.

Now you can make your favorite take out dish at home AND in a slow cooker! This Beef and Broccoli is awesome! Super tender chuck roast simmered for 5 hours in a flavorful sauce. The sauce is made up of beef broth, soy sauce, garlic, oyster sauce, brown sugar and sesame oil. Cornstarch is added at the end to thicken up the sauce.



The broccoli goes into the slow cooker just before it’s done cooking to make sure the broccoli isn’t overcooked.

You can use flank steak or chuck roast in this dish. I recommend using low sodium beef broth and soy sauce to better control the salt level in this dish.


This dish is super easy to make and requires only 10 minutes of prep time. Serve over fried rice of noodles!

My Easy 20 minute Broccoli Beef is also a hit if you are short on time!

    What a waste of over cooked steak! How many recipes for Beef and Broccoli does one need?

    • Hi Jennifer,

      I am so sorry to hear that this did not turn out for you! How long did you cook it for?



      • Eddy Lederer

        Her comment didn’t make any sense to me. That leads me to believe your recipe wasn’t the problem, Miss Kelly.

  • Acatlady

    I made a recipe similar to this except it added a small diced onion. It also called for a high quality cut of beef (I used filet). I cooked it for 2 1/2 hours on high. It was fabulous. Would have also been good with mushrooms added.

  • Mandy Peregoff


    This is amazing! I made it tonight and the meat was so tender… and the flavor…wow!
    Thank you!

  • Becky Smith

    I can’t wait to try this I’m so excited this is always one of my favorite foods but I have never been able to fix it myself so Thank you very much…

  • Bethany Crews

    Can i get away with omiting the oyster sauce and sesame oil? Would it taste weird? I am ok if it doesn’t have the exact flavor as the restaurant.

    • Hi Bethany,

      Yes you could omit those two if you don’t care for them. I think it will still have good flavor!



    • Hi Michelle,

      Beef stew meat would work but would take a lot longer. I would say 6-8 hours on low.



    • Hi Michelle,

      Yes you can use beef stew meat. It will take longer in the slow cooker (about 6-8 hours on low).



  • I made this recipe with tenderloin beef and it was incredible! I didn’t add the oyster sauce (because I didn’t have any) and cooked it on high for three hours. Everything else was as the recipe directed. Absolutely delicious!! This is a keeper!

      • HC

        I have made this recipe before with fresh broccoli and according to the directions. It was delicious! I am trying it today with frozen broccoli and added it in the beginning accidently. Should I try to scoop it out?

        • Hi!

          I would not worry about scooping it out since you already added it. I think it should be fine. Let me know how you make out!

          Thanks & Enjoy!


  • Ellie

    I made this for dinner. As always, when using a Crock-Pot, it’s great smelling it cook throughout the day. Delicious! I did leave out the oyster oil and did not miss it.
    I served with a fried rice recipe I also found on Pinterest.

  • amanda

    I don’t have any oyster sauce.. will this recipe work without it? Or is something else I Could put in as a substitute??

  • Phillip

    Can things be substituted to make this have lower calories? Can the sugar be left out? Diabetic here trying to lose weight. Thanks

    • Hi Phillip,

      Yes I would omit the sugar. You could also use coconut aminos instead of low sodium soy sauce for a lower calorie option as well.

      Thanks & Enjoy!


  • Jackie

    So i have this cooking as i write and just realized i have no rice 😥🤔. So im making homemade mashed potatoes. Hoping thats a good choice with it.

  • Adam N.

    This came out delicious. I substituted the oyster sauce with hoisin sauce. Cooked for 4.5 hrs, and dished with jasmine rice and the broccoli. Received very positive comments. Thanks!

  • Grace

    If I got frozen broccoli florets, can I just put it into the mix frozen or do I need to defrost?

  • corinne avery

    We enjoyed this but found it a bit too salty (we use very little salt in cooking) I used low sodium soy sauce. Any ideas?

    • Hi Corinne,

      I am so sorry to hear this. You can try substituting some water next time in place of the soy sauce or just add a little less soy sauce. Hope this works better for you next time.

      Thank you for your comment!


  • Chelsea

    I’ve got this recipe in the crock pot now. I didn’t see any specification for what temp to turn the crock pot on if planning to cook for 4-5 hours. This may be a silly question but… Low or High?

  • Cooked exactly like your recipe is warranted. DELISH!!!!!!!
    Thank you!! Happy family right now❤
    Super easy to make! It took 4 hours for our crockpot to tender the beef stew cut steak and juices. Added the fresh broccoli for 30 mins. Perfect! I used white rice for bedding. Thank you!! Will definitely be cooking again!

  • Brea

    I have made this recipe countless times it has become a family favorite thank you

  • Kendra

    *QUESTION* I am making this recipe for dinner tonight. Can I use beef stir fry strips instead? (1cm thick by 1.5 inches long). If so, how will this affect cooking time? I want to make sure I don’t overcook the meat!

    Thank you!!

    • Nathan

      If the beef stir fry strips are pre-cooked then all you really have to do is bring them back up to temperature (around 160 degrees). If they are raw beef strips then everything should be the same as the recipe.

      Thanks, Nathan

  • Chris

    Easy recipe cheap ingredients great flavor recomend cooking significantky longer rhan 30 min for softer broccoli texture. Would def recommend.

  • Allison Dimler

    If you are using frozen broccoli, do not add it with everything else, in the beginning. Mine is mush. Tastes great though. Lesson learned. Lol

  • I am going to make your Beef Brocolli dish and I was reading comments/reviews…..its funny to me how people will complain about the ingredients……all they have to do is add or delete something they know they don’t like because of SALT. Even low sodium soy sauce is salty.
    Well I am going to use your recipe this week. I will for sure let you all know how it went.
    Thanks for sharing your recipes Kelley.

  • Autism Mama

    I followed the recipe exactly how directed and it turned out AMAZING. It tasted just like Chinese restaurant-style beef and broccoli. My whole family loved it and I definitely plan on making it again very soon. Yum!
