*Recipe* Beef and Broccoli in the slow cooker

Recently we were invited to incorporated Tenderstem into one of our family recipes.

With the cold weather coming we tend to use our slow cooker more and more so of course the only real recipe that I could go for was a delicious beef and broccoli, in a Chinese inspired sauce served with rice.

The thing I love about this dish is just how easy it is to prepare and cook.

Within 5 minutes you can have almost everything in the slow cooker ready to go for dinner later that day that not only smells but tastes delicious too.Simply served with rice, this is the perfect dinner for anyone in a hurry.

I used steak for this dish however I think it would work just as well with stewing beef as cooking it in the slow cooker will make it beautifully tender.

If you do give this recipe a go, come back and let me know how you got on.
