Back In The Saddle (Oops, Kitchen) Again


Hello, kitchen. Remember me? It's my first time cooking in over two weeks. Thankfully I remembered a recipe I saw recently on another blog. Three ingredients. Slow cooker. No peeling. No chopping. Sounded exactly right for a cook on the mend.

Turns out it was perfect. Daddy-O's comment: "Great!" And then he had seconds. And thirds.


TERIYAKI BEEF with PINEAPPLE

2 lbs. stew beef
15-20 oz. jar Teriyaki sauce (I used Archer Farms Teriyaki grilling sauce)
20-oz. can pineapple tidbits, drained

Put beef in slow cooker. (I used a 3-1/2 qt. size cooker)
Pour sauce over beef and stir.
Cook on LOW for 7-8 hours or HIGH for 5-6 hours.
Add pineapple during last 20-30 minutes of cooking.


I used a Teriyaki grilling sauce from Target (Archer Farms brand.) This is not just the basic teriyaki sauce that I've used for years as a marinade. This is thicker. According to the photo, the recipe on the first blog used a specialty Kikkoman Teriyaki glaze. I was very happy with the Target brand.

Boil-in-the-bag brown rice and steamed broccoli were easy sides to finish this meal. Yeah me! I actually cooked a whole meal. A good one.


Just had to share a photo of this sweet face. Baby Sister went on her first field trip today. To Krispie Kreme, no less! Sweets for the sweet. Can't wait to see her (and the rest of her family) soon.

I still haven't bought a new crockpot. This recipe will have me running to the store to get one! Glad to hear you're feeling a bit better.
