This healthy beef & broccoli recipe is not only whole30 and paleo but super easy to make. Rather than take-out, let your slow cooker do the work.
I’ve been MIA recently because I’ve been working on building out my new blog! Finally it’s live. You can follow me along at TweetEatTravel as I eat and travel my way around the world. Now back to food. I’ve had this beef & broccoli recipe on my mind for a couple of weeks now. While I was tooling around the Milk & Eggs website trying to figure out what to order, I came across their beef stroganoff strips and I said to myself enough is enough it’s time to get this recipe up on the blog. From my guinea pig’s reaction (the husband) I think this one will be on repeat in my house!
I first started using Milk & Eggs grocery delivery service almost 6 months ago. What I love about them in particular is that the food is healthy and usually way cheaper than any grocery store. Plus can’t beat the delivery part. I literally woke up to 2 bags of groceries on my door step including their farm sampler bag which included a ton of produce like the broccoli I used for this.
Whole30 and paleo! Most beef & broccoli recipes use sugar, brown sugar or some sort of sweetener. Why? Why?? This one does not. I almost added honey but after tasting the sauce I decided it didn’t need it. As always I encourage you to taste your sauce before adding it in to the slow cooker.
The broccoli is added during the last 30 minutes of cook time. Yes you can use frozen broccoli if you don’t have fresh, the instructions stay the same. I used an arrowroot (paleo/whole30) slurry to thicken up the sauce after it was done cooking. This is an optional but suggested step.
You can serve this a number of ways. Over brown rice for a more traditional meal or you can also use cauliflower rice or even mashed cauliflower or potatoes.
