Weeknight cooking calls for recipes that are culinary trifectas: meals that are healthy, taste great and easy to prepare! Slow-Cooker Beef and Bok Choy was this week’s winner — the whole family devoured it!
There are three ingredients that you may not have on hand but are definitely worth purchasing:
- Hoisin Sauce – a sweet savory sauce used in a lot of Asian cooking. I add a little orange juice and use it as a marinade for chicken, brush it on shrimp or cod before grilling or baking. Throw some pineapple on, too, while you’re at it!
- Mirin – a sweet Japanese cooking wine – it adds a nice touch to stir fry and allows you to reduce or eliminate the sugar in the recipe.
- Leeks – a member of the onion family with a mellow flavor and nice pop of color. An easy substitute is a vidalia onion.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. I know it can be a challenge to get the dinner on the table — hope this makes it a little easier to “Get ‘er Done”!
