Crockpot Beef & Broccoli

Amy Foster of Gilcrest Farms provided this recipe, which she asserts confidently is an easy dish to prepare, and provides wonderful flavors.  Try it:

1 lb Gilcrest stir fry beef
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1 TBL sesame oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 TBL cornstarch
4 TBL sauce (from the crockpot after it is cooked)
Frozen broccoli florets (as many as desired--suggests 2 cups)

In the insert of the crockpot, whisk together beef broth, soy sauce, darkbrown sugar, sesame oil, and garlic. Place your sliced beef in the liquid and toss to coat. Turn crockpot on low and cook for 4 hours. After 4 hours, remove about 4 TBL from the crockpot and whisk in the corn starch. Return to the crockpot and stir to mix well. Add broccoli on top and cook on low for an additional 30 minutes to thicken the sauce and steam the broccoli.
Serve over hot rice.
