Made my Viking version of beef and broccoli in a crockpot today. Extremely easy and about a fourth the cost of take out – and 1/10th the grease. The boy had thirds, so apparently it tasted OK!
Most people don’t know that Vikings of old are big fans of Chinese take-out.True Story.
Thinly slice (1/4 in) a 2 lb chuck roast. Put in crock.
Stir together: 1 cup beef broth, 1/2 cup soy sauce, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 3 cloves garlic. Pour over meat, stir to combine.
Cook on low 3-4 hours.
Take out some of the liquid to separate bowl and stir in 2 tsp corn starch; return to crock and stir to combine.
Cover meat with fresh broccoli florets.
Cover and cook another 30 minutes and let broccoli steam above the meat.
Take off heat. Stir and serve over rice.
