Easy Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli

 

slow cooker beef and broccoliThis Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli is so easy to make. It only takes about 10 minutes to cut the meat, combine the ingredients for the sauce and put it all in the crock pot. I love that I don’t have to worry about dinner until it’s about time to eat. At that time all that’s left to do is to thicken the sauce with cornstarch, steam the broccoli and cook the rice to go with the beef and broccoli. I absolutely love that I invested in a rice cooker. Once you add the rice and water to the cooker and push the cook button, you don’t have to watch it or worry about it. After the rice cooks, it will stay warm until you are ready for dinner.

By making this Asian dish at home, you save money by not eating out. The Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli tastes delicious just like what you would eat at the restaurant, yet doesn’t cost as much.

Below is the recipe for the Easy Slow Cooker Beef & Broccoli:

Easy Pork & Veggie Won Tons

Easy Pork and Veggie Won Tons

During my childhood, my mom would make these Pork & Veggie Won Tons for New Year’s Eve every year. It was something special that I looked forward to each year. They are so good, you can’t just eat one! And the ketchup and horseradish sauce add to the delicious flavor. This recipe was given to our family from one of my best friend’s mother. She is a wonderful cook, and has shared some delicious Asian recipes with our family. Making these Pork & Veggie Won Tons has become a tradition and now I make them for my children every year for New Year’s Eve.

These Pork & Veggie Won Tons are perfect to take as appetizers for holiday parties, New Year’s Eve, Chinese New Year or football tailgate parties. They really are a yummy appetizer to have wherever you go.

Peppermint Oreo Truffles

Peppermint Oreo Truffles Christmas Holiday

I made these Peppermint Oreo Truffles for my family and they are yummy and chocolatey. I especially love the peppermint flavor when I bite into the truffle because I think of the holidays. What I also love about the truffles is that they only take four ingredients to make them. I had three of the four ingredients in my pantry, and only had to pick up the almond bark during one of my grocery shopping trips.

 

Peppermint Oreo Truffles

For the outside of the truffle, I chose to use almond bark but you could use a chocolate bar. You could even do half and half and make some truffles with white chocolate and some with chocolate.

Wrap up a handful of these truffles in a cellophane bag and add a tag and bow to make a sweet treat for neighbors and friends for the holidays. Here’s how to make the holiday Peppermint Oreo Truffles:
