Asian Beef with Broccoli

1 1/2 pounds boneless beef, sliced thinly
1 can (10 oz) beef broth
1/2 cup oyster sauce
2 Tablespoons corn starch
2 cups broccoli florets (fresh or frozen - but fresh is better)
hot cooked rice sesame seeds (if desired)

Place sliced beef in the bottom of the slow cooker. Pour broth and oyster sauce over beef. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours.

Combine cornstarch and 2 Tablespoons of the cooking liquid in a cup. Stir well. Add to slow cooker. Stir well to combine. Cover; cook 15 minutes longer until thickened.

Cook broccoli until bright green - just a few minutes. Drain and stir into crockpot. Stir gently to mix.

Serve over cooked rice. Garnish with sesame seeds, if desired.

Serves 4-6 (more like 4)

**So, here's the deal with this recipe. I haven't tried it yet but it looks delicious. My mom sent it to me. I checked and there is oyster sauce at IGA (in the oriental section) but it's pretty pricey. Casey had the idea of splitting a bottle between two people to cut down on the price. So, if you decide to try it out let me know how it is!**

Hey gals! So I have made this twice, the first time I didn't know my crock-pot was a fast cooker, so it got pretty burned. The second time, I cut the time down to about 3- 3 1/2 hrs and it was MUCH better. ya think? ha. Anyways, I only added one bouillon cube and that seemed to give it enough flavor and not over do it. I would also not add very much cornstarch at all. It was a little too thick with just the 2 tablespooons. It would probably even be good without the cornstarch? Ok. Enough. bye.
