"So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy"

Sweet & Sour Chicken/Beef/Tofu

Sweet and Sour Chicken

This is an excellent leave all day in the crockpot meal!

I have sort of based this recipe on THIS one and THIS one. If you want to make it with tofu GO HERE and follow some of the hints she has on making it. Otherwise, just slice or cut up whatever meat you like and go for it.

1 pound chicken, beef or whatever
(I usually use uncooked and let it cook all day, you can use already cooked, it won't take as long - cook till veggies are done!)
4-6 cups veggies, chopped or small slices
Bell peppers, carrots, broccoli are good choices, but be creative
1 onion, chopped

In a saucepan, mix:
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup turbinado sugar or sweetener of choice
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup ketchup
2-3 TB flour, cornstarch or arrowroot powder, dissolved in 1/2 cup water
Mix everything together and bring to a boil, should thicken slightly

Combine with meat and veggies throughly and place in crockpot. Or do as I do, and don't dirty something else, stir well once it's all in the crockpot!
Cook on low 8-10 hours or until meat and veggies are done.

Serve over rice and enjoy!
