Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; set pineapple aside. In a small bowl, combine the pineapple juice, cornstarch, broth, soy sauce, ginger and garlic. Set aside.
  2. Cook your rice.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain and set aside. (original instructions called for cooking veggies first, then beef. I like to do it the other way around.).
  4. Add oil to pan and stir fry the broccoli, mushrooms, red pepper and water chestnuts for 3-5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Remove and set aside.
  5. Put the beef back in the skillet, add the cornstarch mixture and bring to a boil. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in the reserved vegetable mixture and pineapple; heat through. Serve over rice.

This was great. I've never used seasame oil before and WOW. I loved the veggies. I added some carrot along with the other veggies and I used 99% FF ground turkey. Great recipe and my DD (3) liked it althogh she picked out the mushrooms and water chestnuts :) Definately will make this again

This was simple to make and had good flavor, too. I'd never had beef with sweet and sour and it was a nice change. It felt like it needed a little something to give it a bit of a kick so I added about 1.5 tablespoons of Thai style chili sauce. Will make again. Thanks for sharing.
