Beef Pineapple Stir Fry

September 2, 2019Teresa

Beef Pineapple Stir Fry is a really sumptuous Asian recipe. It’s made with thinly sliced beef, carrots, onion, bell peppers, snow peas, pineapple tid bits and pineapple juice. The results are outstanding. The beef is marinated for 30 minutes. Then it takes less than 30 minutes to make the rest of the recipe.

This dish has both sweet and savory flavors. The soy sauce marinade includes pineapple juice, cayenne pepper, brown sugar, white wine or chicken broth, and of course, soy sauce. I used a gluten free, low sodium soy sauce.

I served Beef Pineapple Stir Fry to our Friday night care group last month. I served it over rice along with Four Cheese Italian Tomatoes. I had the folks coming up to me several times exclaiming about how great this entree tasted.

We have an eclectic group of people in our small group. Almost all of the guys cook as much, if not more, than their wives. I have sent the recipes to them as well as the gals. I know I’m sure thankful for my husband. He can cook anything, and in fact, taught me how to cook when we were first married.

This recipe really isn’t difficult to make. The key is finding the extremely thinly sliced beef at the grocers. If the beef is too thickly sliced, it won’t cook long enough in this recipe. Therefore, it will be too tough. You can find the thinly sliced stir fry meat in most grocery stores. Though sometimes you have to hunt for it.

This is a wonderful recipe for week night dinners. Serve with cooked, brown rice and you have a complete meal. Beef Pineapple Stir Fry is also terrific for company dinners. The combination of flavors is irresistible. Enjoy.
