Mexican Pineapple Beef

I loved this dish so much I have already made it twice in the last month.  Once again, it looks super fancy, but it’s relatively simple.

2 pounds sirloin or similar steak, cut into 1 1/2 inch chunks

1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1 inch chunks

3 cups pineapple, cut into 1 inch chunks

 

Marinade:

3 T. tomato paste

2 T. olive oil

2 T. white wine vinegar

2 T. honey

1 T. gluten free soy sauce (I prefer Kikkoman’s Gluten Free Soy Sauce)

1 tsp. chipotle chili powder

1 tsp ground coriander

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp fish sauce

1/8 tsp cloves

1 garlic clove, minced

Directions:

Combine the ingredients of the marinade and then stir into the chopped steak, pepper, and pineapple.  Allow to marinate for 4 hours or more in the fridge.

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.  Bake at 450 degrees for 6 minutes, then stir and drain off excess liquid.  Cook for another 6-9 minutes and drain again.  Take it out of the oven and top with cilantro.  Serve with lime slices.

Sweet Potato Sausage Bake

So, I had a baby! I took almost a year off from updating my recipes, but I plan to start again although at what rate I don’t know.  Anyway, I have been working on finding recipes that don’t take a lot of time because who wants to spend forever in the kitchen when there’s a cute baby around?!  I used to do a lot of stove top meals, but I have recently found myself drawn to oven and crock pot recipes.  That way I can work on them at times that are more convenient.

I found this recipe the other day based on the ingredients I had on hand. It’s tasty and doesn’t have lots of ingredients.

3 medium sweet potatoes, diced into 3/4inch cubes

1medium onion, diced

1 pound ground sausage, pinched into 1 inch pieces

Few dashes salt

Few dashes garlic powder

Olive oil (maybe 1/4cup)

Lightly oil 9×13 glass casserole pan. Toss all ingredients in a large bowl to coat with olive oil. Spread in casserole dish and cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 400 degrees for 45-50 minutes. The original recipe calls for this to be cooked in the crockpot, so that’s an option too.
