I contemplated doing my crock pot meal on Tuesday or Thursday this week, since I knew I had to lead worship at church tonight. But, everything worked out! I had justenough time between Master's and church to get everyone home and shove some dinner into my mouth!
And what did I make for dinner today? Teriyaki Beef.
Here were my ingredients.
And, of course, the beef. I used London Broil.
Now, as an aside, I NEVER buy pre-prepped/cut/chopped veggies, not when I can buy whole ones and just prep/cut/chop them myself. And these veggies were expensive. But I knew yesterday that I may not feel like doing all of that prep work when I have other things to get done prior to leaving the house for Master's, so I did buy them this time.
I put the London Broil in first, seasoned it with a little bit of cracked black pepper (which I neglected to include in the photo...sorry), then added the entire bottle of Teriyaki sauce, the peppers, and the onions. I decided to use only one can of the pineapple since one can looked like plenty once I had added it. I then filled half of the pineapple can with water and added it to everything. Cooked on low for eight hours.
Actually, it only cooked for five and a half hours, since I turned it off once we got home so that I could eat some. The meat was fork tender. Not as tender as it could be (given that it hadn't cooked the full eight hours) but still sufficiently tender nonetheless. I put some on my plate, along with some spinach salad with Asian Ginger dressing.
I almost forgot to take a picture of the plate (as per one of my reader's suggestion...thank you, Eleana!) I was in such a rush to inhale the food so I could get to church on time, so this totally is not the greatest food picture. But you can see the beef and the salad, so you get the idea.
And, as per another of my reader's suggestion (thank you, Kathy!), I will include the food bill.
teriyaki sauce: $3.50 (yes, pricey, especially for WAL-MART, but it was a large bottle)
can of pineapple (only including price of one since I didn't use the other): $1.39
diced peppers: $2.99
diced onions: $2.00
TOTAL FOR EVERYTHING THAT WENT INTO MY CROCK POT: $17.17
And now, to figure out what will be on the menu for next week's Crock Pot Wednesday.
