3-4 Boneless Chicken Breasts, chopped into small pieces
3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1 t rice wine vinegar
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
½ teaspoon sesame oil
¾ cup orange marmalade
3 T brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
pinch of pepper
In a bowl mix the rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, marmalade, brown sugar, salt and pepper. Set aside.
In a ziplock bag, add the cornstarch and chicken. Shake to coat. Pour vegetable oil in the skillet and brown the sides of the covered chicken. The chicken doesn’t need to be fully cooked since it is going in the crockpot.
After the chicken is done cooking, pour the pieces into the crockpot. Then cover the chicken with the sauce mixture and give the pot a stir.
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the beef consume, soy sauce, dark brown sugar, sesame oil, and garlic.
Lay the beef strips in the crockpot and pour the sauce over, tossing the strips to coat.
Turn the crockpot on low and cook for about 6 hours. You don’t want to cook the beef too long or it will start to shred.
When it is just about done, take 4 Tbsp of the sauce and whisk it in a small bowl with the cornstarch. Slowly stir this into the crockpot. Add the broccoli, cashews and carrots and stir. Cook an additional 30 minutes so that the sauce can thicken and frozen broccoli and carrots can cook. You don’t want to add the broccoli until the very end or it will be mushy. If you are using fresh broccoli, steam before or add about an hour before it is done cooking to heat through.
