After reading my friend’s post about loneliness and how long would it take for people to start to miss her if something happened to her, I had this horrible thought that what if something had happened to dad… I would probably be the first one to start wondering where he is. So I had to call him. He’s fine. He was scraping off rust from his car today.
- 1 1/2 lbs beef chuck (roast or chuck steak), diced into thin 1 1/2-inch long strips
- 1/2 yellow onion, sliced into 2 portions
- 1 cup low-sodium beef broth or beef consommé*
- 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp sesame oil
- 1/3 cup slightly packed dark-brown sugar
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 2 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
- 3 cups broccoli florets, diced into bite size pieces (from about 12 oz broccoli crowns)
- Sesame seeds, for garnish (optional)
- Add beef and onion portions to a slow cooker. In a mixing bowl whisk together beef broth, soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar and garlic. Season mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Pour mixture over beef and onions in slow cooker. Cover with lid and cook on low heat 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 hours, until meat has cooked through.
- Ladle out 1/4 cup of the broth from slow cooker and pour into a bowl. Add cornstarch and whisk until smooth then return broth mixture to slow cooker and gently stir. Add in broccoli pieces (if you want vibrantly green broccoli you can steam it instead then add it at the end) and cover slow cooker with lid, then increase to high heat and cook 20 minutes longer, or until broccoli is tender and sauce has thickened slightly. Remove onion pieces. Serve warm over white or brown rice sprinkled with optional sesame seeds.
- *I used low-sodium broth (as well as the low-sodium soy sauce) so I have better control over the amount of salt that goes in. You can use regular beef broth, you just might not need to add salt, and same if using the consommé.

sometimes i forget how old i am and i try to do things i used to do as a kid and i just
pretty sure a quiet and reserved pepperfairy is still a hundred times better than some of the twats I work with *hug*
And I am sorry for your twats.
better sometimes to find the people worth your attention by those who take a longer time to get friendly and not judge you than to get mauled in the first rush of a new face…? (and you have every right to your place in the ivory tower) x
Nah, the problem is at work, how people view the professional me. I am in the position that people should come to me but I am worried the way I am makes them not come to me.
It’s come back to me time after time how, at work, people would want me to open up more. “You should just let your amazing personality come out and shine” as one superior once told me.
And it takes a lot of energy out of me when I try reeally hard to come out like that. And I am not sure if I have that kind of energy right now.
