Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli

Ingredients:
2.25 lbs Chuck Pot Roast (boneless)
½ Large Sweet Onion (thinly sliced)
3 cups Beef Stock, divided
¾ cup Soy Sauce
½ cup Brown Sugar
¼ cup Sesame Oil
1 TB Minced Garlic
3 TB Cornstarch
16 ounces Frozen Broccoli (defrosted and warmed)
 
Directions:
Place the pot roast in your freezer for twenty minutes. Remove from freezer and slice the beef into 3 inch long and ½ inch wide pieces or medium bite-size pieces. Remove any large chunks of fat. Place beef into a Crock-Pot Slow Cooker set to high, and add onion slices, 2 cups of beef stock, ¾ cup soy sauce, ½ cup brown sugar, ¼ cup sesame oil, and 1 TB minced garlic. Cook on high for 2 hours.
 
In a small Tupperware container with a sealable lid, add 1 cup of cold beef stock and the 3 TB of cornstarch, put on the Tupperware lid and shake until combined. Add this mixture to crock-pot, replace lid, and continue cooking an additional hour. Once the beef has finished cooking, add the broccoli.
 
Serve with green onions, nuts or seeds, and over rice.
