In step 5 you reference 2 tbs cooking liquid– what is that? the 1/4 c. water? Thanks!
Hi Laurie! The cooking liquid is from the crock pot that was created while it crocked! Otherwise the juices from the meat! Thanks for the question, and Happy Crocking!
Hi 🙂 this sounds delicious. Can you pls tell me how many this recipe serves? Thank you.
Barbara all of my recipes on the website show the serving size in the upper right hand corner of the page, but I am happy to share that this recipe serves 6. Happy Crocking!
That looks so good im gona try it
Love your recipes. I would like to purchase your Get Crocked cookbook in paper form. Where do I get it? Thank you!
So sorry Anna, our e-book is all that we offer at this time. It is not available in paperback at this time. It is nice to have the recipes on your own computer! Happy Crocking!
Can this be made with London broil?
Rona I would use the beef of your choice. I’m sure it will be delicious! Happy Crocking!
This looks great! Is there a substitute you can recommend for the oyster sauce?
Lynne use a sauce that your family likes… if the oyster sauce does not appeal to you. Happy Crocking!
Would soy sauce work in place of oyster sauce?
Maggie it is all to your preference. I have not used soy sauce, but if it is a taste that you enjoy, it may very well work for you. Please post back and let us know how it turned out should you make it this way. Happy Crocking!
Love my Hamilton Beach 6 quart with aluminum insert. You can cook on stove and go right into crock holder. Love your recipes.
love the receipes
Do you think you could you slice the beef, add broth and oyster sauce and freeze until you are ready to use?
Kristine, you should be able to do just that! I freeze so many of my recipes, and have not had any problems at all. Happy Crocking!
This looks so good!! Do you think adding some medium sized cooked shrimp would change the flavor?
Thanks for sharing all your wonderful recipes. I am having a hard time picking which one I want to start with. Yumm!
Thanks Jackie… The fun of cooking is changing things up to make them your own. I am sure it will add flavor. Please post back and let us know how it turned out. Happy Crocking!
We had this for dinner tonight and loved it. I used chuck roast cut thin by the butcher. It had great flavor. Unanimous vote for it being a keeper. Didn’t tell my family about the oyster sauce and none of them could tell. It just tasted great.
Could you make this with chicken and chicken broth? Would the cooking time still be the same?
In the recipe it says I can sub out Soy Sauce for Oyster – do you have a suggested measurement for how much Soy Sauce you would use instead of the Oyster Sauce?
Hi Sara… this is definitely a personal preference. I have not used the soy sauce, as far a s measurement, you should use what you would feel would be a good measurement. You can always not put as much, and have the soy sauce on the table in case you feel it needs more. Hope this helps, and Happy Crocking!
Does the nutrional value include rice???
Vickie it does not. If I list something as optional, I usually do not include the nutritional value for optional.
I have a ninja crockpot that has stove top method also. Should I turn it on stovetop when lid is removed at the end for 15 min.?
Michel, I am sorry I am not familiar with your slow cooker. I would think you would still leave it as a slow cooker? Please give me feedback as I would like to know for the future what is the best way for this style slow cooker. 🙂
Why don’t you cook the broccoli in the crock pot?
Hi Kat, Thank you for posting your question. If you put the broccoli in for the whole time, it would become very soft and mushy. But putting it in at the end cooked, it is a bit more crunchy for the recipe… Hope this helps, and Happy Crocking!
Do you think it would taste good to use tyriaki sauce instead if oyster?
Jessica if this is a flavor that you like, please make this recipe your own. Would love for you to post back and let us all know how it turned out. Happy Crocking!
What brand of slow cooker do you use? There are so many on the market – I don’t know what to buy?
Does anyone make a smaller version of this crock pot? It’s me most of the time, but I occasionally have family over. Most of the smaller versions have a low or high version – but nothing for all day cooking.
Hello, I was wondering if you or anyone else has added other veggies like carrots and cauliflower?
We have no microwave, so would I just “par-boil” the broccoli?
Sherry that will work, have to work with what we have don’t we! 🙂
I was really hoping the broccoli went into the crockpot at the start – so I’m wondering if you think I could add the raw broccoli at some point in the cooking process – like say an hour before it’s done – what do you think?
Deb I love it when someone makes a recipe their own. I would think an hour would steam your washed raw broccoli… please post back and let everyone how it turned out.. Happy Crocking! 🙂
making this for dinner tonight i hope i turnes out good:)
If I were to half this recipe since it’s just for me, would that change the cooking time? Also, what happens if I don’t get home for 10-12 hours? Is the dish ruined? Thanks!
Judy you can halve the recipe.. If you have a smaller slow cooker, you just need to make sure it is 1/2 to 2/3 full to crock properly. If you have a programmable slow cooker, it will turn to warm. If your slow cooker is not programmable, some of my Facebook friends have suggested using a wall timer to turn the slow cooker off in their absence. Hope this helps! 🙂
I made this one. Good thing my husband was home because he said he smelled burning after about 5 hours so he turned it to warm and saved it. I used frozen broccoli and cooked it in the microwave for a minute less than the directions said so that it would still be crisp. I added it to the final 15 minute cooking time along with a can of chop suey vegetables and served over rice with crispy chow mein noodles. It was good. Next time, I will make it when I am home so I am able to keep… Read more »
Glad your Hubby saved the day! 🙂
I tried this last night and it tasted delicious. Only problem I had was almost not sauce. Maybe I cooked it too long (just on low for 7 hours) or trimmed to much fat off the beef? It seems as though I needed to double the amount of broth and oyster sauce to get and actual sauce from this recipe instead of just flavored beef.
Thanks for the message Natalie, I am sure others are like yourself that like more sauce, so this will help them when they make this recipe. 🙂
I just made this tonight and loved it. It did taste a little salty to me tho. Do different oyster sauces taste different? All I could find in our Asian section at the grocery store was oyster flavored sauce so I don’t know if that’s different. Mine was also a bit dry so I added a little more water and that helped.
Thank you for this awesome recipe! I will be sharing it.
Has anyone used asian fish sauce instead of oyster? Are they the same thing?
do u have to use oyster sauce can u use something else
OMG I think I just found my new fav cooking sumite!! I love my crockpot
Thanks Pam and WELCOME! 🙂 Happy Crocking!
Doubled the recipe and used 1/2 teriyaki and 1/2 oyster sauce and 1 tsp of ground ginger. Also added asparagus with the broccoli…..delicious!

what an amazing recipe…I am so goign to make this instead of ordering EXPENSIVE chinese food with it’s now smaller portions. Saving this to my excell recipe sheet.
This was really good, I loved it actually! Here are the changes I made, first I had left over stew meat in the freezer, so it was more chunks then strips of beef. Second I added a clove of garlic, and a tablespoon of fresh finely diced ginger. And then my biggest mistake was putting in the raw fresh broccoli about an hour and a half before it was ready to serve. That was way to long to cook, it got to soft. Also I should have added more broccoli because I love broccoli. It was still very good, it… Read more »
Thanks Sean for your post and letting us know how you made this recipe your own. LOVE THE 5 STARS! 🙂
This looks really tasty, and I LOVE beef and broccoli! But the nutritional information (calories, carbs, protein) seems really high for a sixth of the amount of beef, broccoli, beef broth and oyster sauce used in the recipe. Could you explain how you determined the nutritional info? Thanks!
Cooked this tonight for dinner, and I was very disappointed. The sauce based on the recipe was not enough and I had to add more. The beef fell apart into mush when I stirred in the (undercooked) broccoli. And it was completely bland. My kids wouldn’t even eat it.
Sorry for your disappointment Laura! I am not sure what happened with your recipe, as it has always turned out for me, and others have posted that it was delicious.
OMG! Made this today. Added the juice and zest of 1 mandarin orange and a tablespoon of chili paste with garlic. Suddenly, it’s the yummiest Orange Beef & Broccoli ever! Thanks for the recipe!!
Can I substitute frozen boneless chicken for the beef? And if so should I swap out the beef broth for chicken broth or gravy?…or do you have a similar recipe for a Chinese Chicken and broccoli crock dish?!?
I have a 4 quart crock pot and whenever I see you post recipes, you don’t state what size crock pot is needed for it. Can I use my 4 quart crock pot for all your recipes and, if not, how would I know how to adjust the amounts of ingredients to accommodate my smaller crockpot?
Lorraine, I don’t always state the slow cooker size as some people will not consider a recipe they may really want to make if they do not have the size stated. The key to any slow cooker dish is to make sure your crock is 1/2 to 2/3 full for your dish to crock properly. You will probably be close, you should be fine with the 4 quart slow cooker on this recipe. Hope this helps, and Happy Crocking!
I know you said to use a substitute sauce that my family will like. But when you said that soy sauce could be used as a substitute, was that in place of the beef broth or the oyster sauce or both? Thank you in advance. Can’t wait to try this!
Hello Danielle, that would be in place of the oyster sauce. You will still want the beef broth… Enjoy and Happy Crocking!
Where does the 58 grams of carbs come from? With the ingredients listed it doesn’t make sense.
Hi Kathy, it is from the rice that is cooked to serve with the Beef & Broccoli! Happy Crocking!
This was excellent!! Since I didn’t have oyster sauce, I used stir fry sauce instead. Came out perfect 🙂 thank you for the recipe!!
