Thursday Recipe - Hawaiian Beef

Slow cooker recipe for you. It worked pretty well, but it wasn't quite what I was hoping to re-create. I've been looking for a sweet tomato beef recipe that my neighbor taught me to make years ago. It had pineapple, bell peppers, raisins, and a bunch of other yummy stuff in a ketchup based sauce.

Here's try #1:

Hawaiian Beef

1 large onion, cut into strips
2-3 lb top round steak or roast, cut into chunks
4 cloves garlic, crushed
2 large bell peppers, cut into strips
1 c. crushed pineapple
1/2 c. raisins
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 T. ground ginger
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. hoisin sauce
1 c. ketchup
1 t. ground black pepper

Layer everything into a large (5-6 quart) crockpot or slow cooker in the order given. Slap the lid on and let it cook on high for 1-2 hours. Give it a good stir, then cover and cook for another 4-6 hours on low.

Stir well before serving over steamed rice.

Toppings:
chopped peanuts
sliced almonds
shredded coconut
chopped green onions
mandarin oranges
raisins
pineapple tidbits
