This Crockpot Keto Beef & Broccoli Tastes Better Than Chinese Takeout

Crockpot Keto Beef and Broccoli

yield: 6 SERVINGS

prep time: 15 MINUTES

cook time: 1 HOUR 15 MINUTES

total time: 1 HOUR 30 MINUTES

Ingredients

Directions

1

Heat your largest skillet on the stove over medium/high heat with coconut oil. Place the sliced meat and cook for a minute or so, in order to brown it. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the browned meat to the slow cooker.

2

In a bowl, whisk together the beef broth, coconut aminos, sesame oil, garlic, Swerve brown, and ginger paste, until smooth and combined.

3

Pour the sauce over the meat in the slow cooker. Cook on HIGH for 1-1.5 hours, or LOW for 2-4 hours until meat is cooked and tender. Note: times could vary slightly per slow cooker, but 1 hour on HIGH worked perfectly for me!

4

Optional step: Remove the meat, minus the sauce, to a separate plate. Stir together 1 teaspoon Xanthum gum and 2 tablespoons of the liquid from the sauce in a small bowl. Whisk that into the liquid in the slow cooker to thicken the sauce.

5

Add the broccoli and the meat back into the slow cooker. Cook everything on high for another 20 to 30 minutes or until the broccoli cooks and the sauce slightly thickens. Serve alongside cauliflower rice if desired.

Ready for a yummy keto Crockpot meal idea?

You’ve gotta try this tasty keto beef and broccoli dinner idea that’s super easy to make using your CrockPot slow cooker for convenience. Better yet, it’s a recipe the entire family will love!

Tips for making keto beef and broccoli in the Crockpot slow cooker:

  • I chose to quickly brown the meat with a little oil, salt, and pepper on the stove before placing it in the slow cooker for additional flavor. You can, however, choose to skip that step if in a hurry! Just season and place inside the slow cooker if desired.
  • Adding a touch of sweetness gives it that yummy Chinese takeout vibe, so I added Swerve brown sugar substitute to keep things keto, though you can use your favorite keto-approved sweetener.
  • I always keep a bottle of ginger paste in the fridge since it lasts for weeks and is easy to use. You can always sub in the same amount of freshly minced ginger instead.
  • I served mine over a little cauliflower rice and it was such a great keto meal! For the nutrition, don’t forget to add about 2g net carbs per every 1/2 cup cooked cauliflower rice.

Keto beef and broccoli was a hit with my family!

Sometimes my kids aren’t fans of keto meals, and this one was a winner with everyone, which always makes for a less stressful dinnertime. The sauce has a savory-sweet taste and really makes this meal special. Make sure to spoon extra sauce over the meat and broccoli when serving. 😋

See what my taste tester teammate, Jenna, had to say about this recipe:

“The whole family loved this meal! I don’t think I’ve ever used the CrockPot to make anything in an hour before!  I love the use of the tubed ginger paste — I have never tried that before and it worked beautifully! It was so much easier than grating ginger.

Overall, I loved the flavor of the sauce! I put mine over cauliflower rice and it was delicious!”

    Can this be cooked in an instant pot?

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes. I have not tried it yet, but a few recipes I looked up said to brown meat, pour in sauce and seasonings, and set to high pressure for 12 minutes. Steam broccoli in microwave and serve.

    I just made this and it was SO yummy!!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh yay! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Cheri

    I don’t have coconut aminos, is there a good substitute for this or can it be omitted?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Cheri! You could use soy sauce in a pinch, however if wanting to keep it Keto, coconut aminos in Asian inspired recipes is best and worth picking up. Hope this is helpful!
