If you haven’t already, you should definitely make the plunge and buy a darn slow cooker. They are pretty high on my list now, around the level of chocolate and the sound of waves crashing on the beach.
Now, the nice thing about this recipe is that you can’t mess it up. It’s got all the key ingredients to brilliance, and they are as follows:
2. Slow cooking for hours to lock in that flavour
3. Even if you mess up and put the broccoli in from the very start, it will still taste amazing. However, your broccoli will be a bit soggy!
I added more beef stock, convinced that the recipe needed more liquid. If I had realized the broccoli needed to be added later on, I wouldn’t have done so. Still, it turned out just fine! In fact, it came out tasting like beef stew a bit, which I find unbelievably soothing.
P.S. Don’t use broccoli florets just because they’re the only thing you can find at Costco; make the trip to the grocery store for some real broccoli. (It still tastes good but you need more of the leafy part than you get with florets).
P.P.S. If anyone can tell me what the leafy part of broccoli is, I’d appreciate it!
