2018 #31: Honey Teriyaki Pork Stir Fry

I made this in my electric pressure cooker and it was delicious!  I sauce my pork stew meat in the Garlic Infused Oil on saute in my pressure cooker…then added all the sauce and cooked on the meat setting.  Let NPR and then add veggies…put lid back on and let veggies cook…add pineapple…top with peanuts.  I saved this over sticky rice I made in my pressure cooker earlier in the Day…Enjoy!!

    2 T Garlic Infused Oil

  • 8 oz can pineapple tidbits
  1. In large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, sauté pork until no longer pink, about 4-6 minutes.
  2. Stir in vegetables and Honey Teriyaki Sauce, Aged Balsamic Vinegar and soy sauce. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat; stir in pineapple.

Tip: For a thicker sauce, whisk together 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 1 tablespoon water. Stir into stir-fry; simmer 1 minute.



2018 #25: One-Pot Mac & Cheese

Came home and put this together and let it cook while I did some mowing…turned out perfect and you could use so many different cheeses, Tastefully Spices and meat to change this recipe up…Enjoy and remember to order your Tastefully Simple groceries at:  www.SimplyKimberS.com

One-Pot Mac & Cheese (Electric Pressure Cooker)

  • 1 pound elbow macaroni
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pound ground Hamburger
  • ¼ cup (½ stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1/8 t cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 (12 ounce) package shredded mild Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Onion Onion Seasoning
  • 1 1/2 t mustard (I used our Champagne Garlic Honey Mustard)

    Brown hamburger with Onion Onion on meat setting until no longer pink, turn off.  Add macaroni, broth and butter in the instant pot.  Secure the lid and set steam release to seal.  Select manual setting and cook for 6 minutes at high pressure (my rice setting works perfect).  Perform a quick release.  Open pot and stir in remaining ingredients.  Let set for 5 minutes with on, stir and let set again.

If you like you can finish the mac and cheese under the broiler for a crispy topping:
transfer to 3-qt baking dish, sprinkle with panko bread crumbs, parmesan cheese and Italian Garlic Seasoning.  Broil just a few minutes, until the bread crumbs are golden brown.
