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!

    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!

  • Alli

    Love this!!!! I used hoisin sauce instead of oyster sause and also added red pepper flakes. Soooo good ?

  • Stacey

    Hi there. Can I use oyster sauce AND hoisin? I have both but I’m newbie to Chinese cooking. Would the flavors compete? If I can, should it be the same measurement for both? Thanks.

    • Hi Stacey,

      Yes you can use both! If you want to do both you could do 1/8 cup of each.

      Thanks & Enjoy!

      Hi Becky,

      Romanesco is so pretty, however, I can’t say I’ve ever tasted it personally. It seems like it would be a perfectly good substitute, let me know how it terns out!


  • Naydene

    One of the first recipes daughter and j made together. Turned out great. She makes for her new husband now. I only add a bag of coin cut fresh carrots. Love it and has always turned out perfectly.

    Hi there! I have this in the crocks now, however I accidentally added the cornstarch at the beginning ?. Will it still turn out ok? Thanks! It already smells great! PS: I’m adding some fresh snow peas from my garden! ~ Cindy

      Hi Tammy,

      Hoisin sauce works well as a substitute for oyster. I Hope you enjoy!
