Crock Pot Beef and Broccoli - The Girl Creative

Am I the only one that has a hard time breaking out of the habit of “same old, same old” for dinner? I feel like I have the world’s pickiest eaters in my household. With that comes pretty much the same basic menu week in and week out. I get bored of it and I know my family gets bored of it too. What’s a girl to do though, when all your kids want for dinner is chicken nuggets and french fries? I’ll tell ya what. You bust out the crock pot and make something new and delicious anyhow!

I came across this delicious recipe a few months ago via a video I saw on Facebook. I did what I always do when I see something delicious: I save it for later. Well later came and I made this Crock Pot Beef & Broccoli from Creme de la Crumb and it was as delicious as it looked! It was definitely a step up from the usual fare of chicken nuggets and french fries. Oh, we still had haters at the dinner table but finally I got to enjoy a meal that I really wanted to eat. 95% of the time I cook dinner based upon what I know my family will want to eat. I don’t often make something that is on my favorites list so I was as happy as a pig in mud to have this for dinner.

Did you know that 1 TBSP of Soy Sauce + 1 Cup of Water is a beef broth substitute? Me neither! So. There you go. Just in case you find yourself in the same predicament.
