I went to the Farmer’s Market last week and purchased over a pound of broccoli for just $1.00. Seriously, I don’t know why I am not hitting up that market every single week, especially in the winter months when we don’t get our CSA share.
Anyway, I was trying to figure out what to do with my $1.00 broccoli, when I remembered that I had lots of stew beef in the freezer from the local farm I buy from. Here’s what I came up with — and as a bonus — it can be completely cooked in the slow-cooker!
- 1 onion, diced
- 1-2 cups baby carrots, chopped up, or not. :)
- 2 cups of broccoli florets
- 3/4 - 1 pound stew beef, chopped into 1" chunks
- For the Sauce:
- 1/2 cup water
- 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped (I used a garlic press)
- 1 tablespoon ginger powder (fresh grated is best)
- 3 tbsp soy or teryaki sauce
- Layer the onions, carrots, broccoli, and beef in the slow cooker.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the sauce.
- Pour the sauce over the beef in the slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours
- Serve over brown rice.
