Dinner Rescue

Lately, I haven’t been eating a lot of meat.  Actually, I felt better not eating meat, but I needed a little boost in iron and my Aunt Brenda brought me all this GOOD beef.  You just can’t let that get freezer burn.  So I decided to whip out the crock pot and get to work!

Teriyaki Beef Salad

I’m not really good with asian flavors, so I had to completely follow the recipe!  Maybe I’ll build up my confidence enough to play with these ingredients a bit more.

  • 1 lb steak or roast (I used a cube steak and it worked perfectly)
  • 3 TBSP soy sauce
  • 2 TBSP canola oil
  • 2 TBSP honey (Aunt Debbie?  Do you see how many times honey is coming up in my recipes?  Should we write a cookbook together and sell it with your honey???)
  • 2 TBSP finely chopped garlic
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 TBSP chopped green onion (I only had a regular onion and I added 1/4 cup!)

Mix all the ingredients except the beef together.  Place the roast in the crock pot, pour the mixture over top and cook on low for 8 – 10 hours or on high for 3 – 4 hours.

Cut up your favorite veggies and toss up your favorite salad.

I love bell peppers and cherry tomatoes.  I’m also a fan of croutons (the garlic cheese) but I didn’t know if the flavors would mix well, so I crumbled up some Stacy’s Pita Chips.

Shred the beef when done.  Place on top of your salad.  Use any kind of cheese that you like, but I found shredded mozzarella worked really well.  And, since I didn’t have any asian flavored dressings, I used red wine vinegar and EVOO with a little pepper. 

So hopefully if you were having a problem deciding what to make for dinner you just figured it out 🙂

Update:  I appealed my fine.  I’ll let you know the verdict.

Also, continue working hard on your Self Love Challenge #1!!!!  I’ll check in tomorrow and give you a new one.  Have a wonderful day.

    This recipe would also be good with Morningstar Crumbles for those who want a “meaty” taste, but prefer not to eat beef. But now I want a nice piece of round steak! With tomatoes, peppers, and mushrooms! 🙂

    I will try to make this salad next week. The girls at school look forward to your new dishes. Are you trying to tell me that you need some honey?????? Honey!

    I really need to get my crockpot out and start making some meals like this! I wonder what I could use a meat substitute in the crockpot? Hmm, I’ll have to do some recipe research!
