This Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli is so easy to make and tastes amazing! You can make this easy beef and broccoli in your slow cooker or Crockpot for the perfect weeknight meal. This slow cooker beef and broccoli is also paleo and gluten free!
Do you love beef and broccoli? I sure do! Back before I changed to the paleo diet I would order beef and broccoli every time we went for Chinese food. Well, long gone are the days when I would ever go out for Chinese food, but that doesn’t mean my love for beef and broccoli has lessened at all. So I decided it was finally time to make my own version. And this Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli is the result.
Not only can this beef and broccoli be made in the slow cooker or Crockpot, it’s also gluten free, soy free and paleo. This slow cooker beef and broccoli has officially become a new favourite in our house and I hope it will become one in yours as well. It pairs really well with cauliflower rice (or white rice if you aren’t following the paleo diet).
Why This Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli Is So Good:
- It’s incredibly easy to make! Because you make it in the slow cooker or Crockpot you hardly have to do any work
- It’s made with healthy ingredients like grass fed beef (If you are interested in getting grass-fed beef delivered straight to your door click here)
- It’s good for your gut health because it has bone broth (this is my favourite brand of bone broth)
- It tastes amazing! The sauce for this dish tastes so, so good!
How to Make Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli:
You are going to love me for how easy this beef and broccoli is to make. First you are going to place all the sauce ingredients into your slow cooker or Crockpot and whisk them together to combine. Next you will add the chopped, grass fed sirloin steak and coat it with the sauce.
Then turn your slow cooker onto low heat and cook for 4 hours.
Next you will add the chopped broccoli to your slow cooker or Crock Pot and stir well to combine the ingredients together. Then cook for an additional 1-2 hours, depending on how soft you like your broccoli.
That’s it! Isn’t that nice and easy?
It’s no secret that I love my slow cooker. I use that thing all the time. Slow cookers or Crockpots are the perfect tool to make easy, delicious dinners. You basically just throw in the ingredients and let that little gadget work its magic. Honestly I don’t know what I would do without mine. I’d be spending a lot more time in the kitchen that’s for sure. And let’s face it, I have way better things to do with my time than slave away in the kitchen (and I know you do too). So I just had to create another slow cooker recipe for you guys.

This recipe was originally published on October 16, 2017, and since then I have received a few questions about it that I will answer here for everyone to see. This post was updated on November 17, 2018:
Is This Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli Whole30?
No it’s not. While this dish is paleo, gluten free and soy free it does contain honey which is not allowed on the Whole30 diet. But don’t worry, I have tons of other Whole30 compliant recipes for you to choose from! You can see them all here.
Can I Add Other Vegetables To This Slow Cooker Beef And Broccoli?
Absolutely! I also love adding chopped or sliced bell peppers to mine. I just add them at the same time as the broccoli. Feel free to add other vegetables as you like.
What Should I Serve This Slow Cooker Beef And Broccoli With?
I love pairing this easy beef and broccoli with cauliflower rice. If you eat grains, using white rice is a great option as well. You can see why I avoid eating grains by reading this post: Why Grains Are Not Healthy
What Are Coconut Aminos?
Coconut aminos are amazing! If you are gluten free or paleo coconut aminos is the perfect soy free substitute. It tastes just like soy sauce, without the health damaging effects of soy. Instead of soy, it’s made with coconut sap. How cool is that? I love this particular brand of Coconut Aminos. Other names for coconut aminos are Naked Coconuts Soy Free Soy Sauce Substitute or Coconut Sauce. Just make sure you are reading your labels carefully. There are some soy sauce substitutes that actually still contain soy (makes no sense right?).
I would love to get your feedback on this slow cooker beef and broccoli if you make it!
