Recently my third child (my husband) and I have gotten back into the “health” swing of things and it feels so good to be back. Before I got pregnant I was huge into working out and eating super healthy. Huge. I was really hardcore and my husband made fun of me and begged me to make “normal” food. So I found it super funny when he was the one that started all of this!
I have always been a huge fan of crockpot and easy meals, especially when I was eating healthy. I love the idea of dump and go. My life was hectic before having Buddy and now as you can imagine, I am even more busy. So I need all the help I can get. I have a ton of amazing meals pinned that you can check out here if you would like to take a look.
Last Christmas my mother bought me the best present I have gotten in a long time. I had been raving about my love of crockpot meals but complaining that everything was drying out because it cooked too long. When you commute 45 minutes both ways, it is hard to cook things in a crockpot because like I said, crap dries out. Anyways, she got me a nice big crockpot that has a timer! It has been a huge blessing and many delicious meals have been made in it. If you are interested in the specific kind I use check it out: http://amzn.to/2jd63mf
After eating chicken all this week, my husband begged me to do something different. Something other than chicken and mexicanish food. After scouring Pinterest I found a similar to this but I made it even easier and tweaked it a bit. AKA I changed a few ingredients and threw it in a crockpot! This could be easily converted into a freezer meal (another thing I LOVE to do). Just throw the ingredients in a gallon bag and freeze it.
This was super yummy and thumbs up from the hubby.
What you will need:
- 1 package of frozen stir-fry veggies ( I used Birds Eye)
- 1lb of round steak or chuck steak cut up
- 1 tbsp Ginger
- 1/2 cup Beef Broth (Try using low sodium)
- Note: If you decide to use chicken, use chicken broth instead
- 2 tbsp Ketchup
- 2 tbsp Soy Sauce (Try using low sodium)
- 1 tsp Cornstarch
- 2 tsp Sesame Oil
- 3 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 cup cut up broccoli (or frozen)
How to do it:
Here is the easy part! Throw it all into the crockpot and once it is mixed, set it on high for around 3.5 hours or low for 7 hours and you are done!
Super easy and super tasty! I would suggest serving it over wheat rice or even cauliflower rice. Whichever you prefer!
