Clean Eating Crock Pot Beef and Broccoli

I know you all know this, but I love my crock pot. It makes life so much easier when dinner is done when you walk in the door after a long day at work. Not to mention, you can easily double or triple crock pot recipes and eat them many times throughout the week. This is definitely one to bookmark in fact, you should try it today. Right now. 

Just kidding. 


Ingredients
- 1 lb lean round steak, cubed (You can probably use chicken too)
- 1 package mixed broccoli and carrots (or you can chop up yourself, I'm lazy)
- 1 package sliced mushrooms
- 1/2 onion, chopped 
- 1/4 cup low sodium Tamari
- 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 2 T red chili paste
- 2 tsp ground ginger
- 2 tsp coconut oil
- 1 tsp pepper


Directions
1. Throw it all in the crock pot except for broccoli and carrots, and cook on low for 5 hours.
2. Cook broccoli and carrots when you're ready for dinner and throw them in the crock pot with everything else, and mix. I find that my veggies are less mushy this way.

 This was only enough for dinner, no leftovers, so I will likely double it next time. This would also be awesome over brown rice for lunch!

And since I always let you know B's reaction to new recipes, this one was: "I want to eat this everyday." Haha funny man he is.

  2. I have to try this! Also, I just now realized I'm pretty sure we have the same placemats :) I have been trying different backgrounds lately and they look identical.

  4. Yay for yummy crock pot recipes!!! So gonna make this on Saturday. I will probably be using chicken though since I am not a big fan of steak. Honestly I can't remember the last time I had any. I also just recently decided to try coconut oil and LOVE IT!! SO GOOD! I was wondering though if there is a specific brand that is supposed to be better/healthier? I bought the Trader Joe's brand because it was on sale for a really good price. Thank you again for all the fabulous recipes! Some of my favorite are salsa verde crock pot chicken, bell pepper hummus and of course chocolate peanut butter protein bars ( I use almond butter).

  8. Do you actually put the coconut oil in the crock pot or do you use it to cook the vegetables?

  10. Just put this in my crockpot...can't wait to get home from work and try it! When you say to cook the broccoli and carrots when you are ready to eat, do you just add them to the crock pot to cook or do you steam them and then add to crockpot?

    Thanks for the recipe!!!

  12. Could you substitute low sodium soy for the tamari? And also I was wondering what the coconut oil's purpose was? Just wondering since I only have extra virgin olive oil on hand. Thank you so much for the amazing recipes!!!

  13. LIttle B- So I made this last night and threw everything (except veggies) in the crock pot right before going to bed at midnight. Woke up around 5 and put it into tupperware with some brown rice. I have to say that this a delicious recipe!!! It was so easy and had so much flavor and it was clean!! Thank you!

  14. Made this today, and it was more like soup (I doubled it, I probably messed something up). But it was SO, SO GOOD. And I have leftovers sorted out for about eight days!
