Beef with broccoli

Beef and broccoli is a delicious meal that'll get everyone running to the dinner table. I mean, who can resist a sizzling plate of tender beef and crunchy broccoli cooked to perfection in a savory (and low-carb) sauce?

I'm all for keeping my favorite meals even when looking for low-carb options, and even more so when it eliminates extra cleanup. With just a crock pot, you only need to prep and forget, letting your slow cooker do the rest. Talk about a delicious time-saver that will satisfy your cravings for Asian-inspired foods. 

Low-Carb Beef and Broccoli Crock Pot Recipe 

Not only does this recipe have a balance of veggies and protein, but it also eliminates high-carb ingredients, such as sugar, flour, and cornstarch, without changing the flavor. This recipe serves 8. 


  • 2 pounds of boneless beef steak, sliced into strips 
  • 2 cups of beef stock
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 8 ounces whole mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 heads of broccoli, cut into florets
  • Sesame seeds and green onions for garnish 


  1. Combine all ingredients (except broccoli) in a crock pot and mix well.
  2. Cover and heat on low for 6 to 8 hours. Stir occasionally so the sauce covers the meat. 
  3. Add broccoli to the crock pot for 20 to 30 minutes before serving.
  4. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions 
Quick Tip

For a vegetarian option, swap beef steak and beef stock for plant-based steak and vegetable stock. 

Low-Carb Side Dishes

While this recipe goes well with a plate of steaming hot rice, try these side dishes if you're looking to keep your carb count low.  Here are some tasy suggestions: 

  • Make some homemade cauliflower rice 
  • Try it with mashed cauliflower (with extra garlic) 
  • Make lettuce wraps
  • Serve with a side of zucchini noodles 
  • Add some extra steamed vegetables
