Beef and Broccoli

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was “two ways”. I have never made this before and was incredibly surprised on how easy it was. Plus I love anything in the slow cooker. One thing I could use more of was more heat and possible a little more cornstarch.
