Sweet & Sour Meat & Rice

This sounds yummy. I think the only thing I would change would be to use regular rice & add more water or broth to it. Last time I drained the pineapple juice in a measuring cup & added the appropriate amount of water for the serving size I was using (IE: 1 cup uncooked rice = 2 cups liquid

Sweet and Sour Meat and Rice

16 oz extra lean ground turkey or beef

1 cup crushed pineapple, packed in fruit juice, un drained

1 3/4 cups tomato sauce

2 TBSP brown sugar

1 TBSP soy sauce

1 1/2 cups chopped green pepper

1 cup chopped onion

2 tsp. dried parsley flakes

1 1/3 cups uncooked instant rice

In a large skillet sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, brown meat.

Spray a slow cooker container with butter-flavored spray.

In prepared container, combine un drained pineapple, tomato sauce, brown sugar, and soy sauce.

Stir in green pepper, onion, and parsley flakes. Add browned meat and uncooked rice.

Mix well to combine. Cover and cook on low for 6 hours. Mix well before serving.
