Beef and Broccoli

Thanks to a good friend of mine from Facebook Ann Ball, who publishes recipes daily

I happened to have stumbled across this recipe the other day and modified it slightly due to my corn allergy.  I still have not found a substitute for soy sauce so it was not totally corn free (sadly) so the allergy pills still had to be taken each time I ate it.  I decided to make just enough rice per each meal so that the rice was hot and fresh each time that we ate.  We had several meals from this dish and I took the left over gravy and froze it to use as a base for the next time that I make the dish.

Crock Pot Beef and Broccoli


1 pound boneless beef chuck roast, sliced into thin strips
1 cup beef or chicken consumme or broth
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon sesame oil (I put in 2 tbsp)
3 garlic cloves, minced (I put in 3 heaping tbsp minced garlic in olive oil)
2 tablespoons cornstarch (I used potato starch in its place)
2 tablespoons sauce from the crock pot after being cooked
Fresh broccoli florets (as many as desired) I used frozen
Hot cooked rice

1. Place beef in a crock pot.
2. In a small bowl, combine consomme, soy sauce, brown sugar, oil, and garlic. Pour over beef. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
3. In a cup, stir cornstarch and sauce form the crock pot until smooth. Add to crock pot. Stir well to combine.
4. Add broccoli to the crock pot. Stir to combine.
5. Cover and cook an additional 30 minutes on high (the sauce has to boil for it to thicken).
6. Serve over hot cooked rice.

German Goulash

German Goulash

My hubby decided to give me a lesson in German Cooking last night and insisted that I take pictures of the process.  So here you go…

Starting with a pound of basic stew beef…

Cut into small pieces then place into a sprayed pot and brown.

Make sure to brown all sides.

Drain off all excess water and fat from the beef.

Add secret ingredient…

Knorr Goulash Beef Stew Recipe Mix

Thoroughly fold mix into meat and make sure all meat is covered with the mixture.

Will look like this when blended

Add 3 cups of water

Stir well

Bring to a boil then set to simmer till meat is tender

We serve with Brochen

Which we put butter on then dip into the goulash

Serve with potato salad or slaw and you have a meal.

That was my cooking lesson for last night.  I hope that you enjoy…Should be able to find the Knorr Goulash Beef Stew Mix at your local market in the spice dept. or dry soup isle or
