Crock Pot Beef Broccoli

This dish is SUPER easy to make, and tastes as good or better than the equivalent in Chinese restaurants. TRUST ME ON THIS.

Crock Pot Beef BroccoliIMG_3779

Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 lbs. flank steak, thinly sliced (screw that, I just get a package of pre-cubed stew meat)
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 TBSP sesame oil (I use olive oil)
  • 1 TBSP minced garlic
  • 1/4 tsp. red chili flakes
  • 4 cups (about 2 bunches) broccoli florets
  • 2 TBSP cornstarch + 3 TBSP cold water

Combine first 7 ingredients in a crock pot and cook on low for 4-5 hours.

30 minutes before serving, add corn starch mixture and stir.

Steam broccoli separately and add to pot. Stir thoroughly and serve over a bed of white rice.

The Slow Mo Guys take on the condom challenge, and film it in slo-mo, natch.

Tarantula hawks use live tarantulas to impregnate with their young. The tarantula is paralyzed from the hawk’s sting, while the hawk lays its eggs inside the tarantula’s body cavity. The young hatch and eat the poor tarantula from the inside out. There’s been a lot of them flying around lately. This one was trying to drag its host under the house.
