Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli Recipe.

So much for red meat being “empty calories”! What we really need is a balance of meat and vegetables: they fill in each other’s gaps, and even better, they taste delicious together. The broccoli in this recipe is added right at the end of cooking, so it’s still crisp and bright green when you serve the dish: it’s all the convenience of slow-cooking, but without the fear of mushy or soggy vegetables. The whole recipe picks up a rich flavor as the beef simmers away, and adding an apple at the beginning is a special touch that adds just a little something to the sauce.
