My friend George lives in Pahala on da Big Island. He's the one who first taught me how to cook in hot weather. This is one of his staples.
- 2 lbs top round steaks, trimmed of fat and cut into thin strips across the grain (It's easier to slice thinly if it's partially frozen)
- 2 yellow onions, quartered and sliced
- 1⁄2 cup beef stock (homade is best)
- 5 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon garlic granules
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt

- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 large garden tomatoes, cut into wedges
- 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, reserve liquid
- 1 cup jasmine rice, cooked (3 cups after cooking)
- 1 cinnamon stick (cooked with the Jasmine Rice)
- Combine well, everything through the Black Pepper.

- Stir every 3/4 hour or so.
- Increase heat to high.

- Combine Cornstarch, Pineapple Juice, and Soy Sauce.
- Add mixture to crock pot, mix well.
- Cover and cook an hour.

- Just before serving stir in Tomatoes and Pineapple chunks.

This was pretty darn good! I expected the meat to stay in the strips but it kind of fell apart into small bits, but still very tasty. I added a small amount of crushed red pepper to give a bit of a kick - I may try some sliced jalepeno or serrano pepper next time. I served as suggested with chappatis (#39198 Chappatis (Roti) by Ranikabani) and sangria (#245611 White Sangria by boomette1) - what a great meal!
With a Pierre Dance recipe and a Bev Ellis recommend - how could one miss! Yes another of the Pierre Dance recipes that proved to be a winner. Made as posted - used the best paprika I could find here in Saskatchewan - worked for me! And yes garden fresh tomatoes! The Jasmine rice - one of my favorites - the Sangria - I'm working on that! Thank you Pierre for posting those great recipes of yours.
This is such an easy recipe, and the flavors are wonderful. I followed the recipe it is GREAT!!!!! I would recommend this recipe to everyone. I have already passed it to friends. Thanks so much for posting.
