What I Did: I saw this collection of photos for beef broccoli and fell in looooove. So pretty, right? I just had to do it! I would definitely impress the hubs with this one! Right? I decided to forgo cooking with a wok or skillet and use this crock pot recipe instead: clickity click. Now I do not like soy sauce or ginger and I asked myself, “How in the heck can you call it teriyaki steak with no teriyaki sauce?” I also don’t like salt and don’t tend to use any extra salt in recipes when I cook.
So I decided to modify things a bit. I couldn’t go wrong. Crock pot cooking is so easy, right? Riiiight! So I used one cup of teriyaki sauce instead of soy sauce and eliminated the ginger. I also used real garlic cloves instead of minced garlic from a jar. Set the crock pot on low to eight hours and oops! I forgot that part about slicing up the beef before putting it into the crock pot. Then I left to the office.

Next Time I Will: Skip the crock pot and just use the wok instead.
