Asian Pineapple Pork.

Foodie Emergency.

Thank goodness for Trader Joe's Soyaki (a unique blend of teriyaki sauce and marinade for meat, fish, or vegetables). Caitlin introduced me to the dressing a few years ago and now I always have a bottle in the fridge in case of a foodie emergency. This was one. I made this pork in the crock pot because it was on super sale at rainbow. The pork was tender and fell apart but the flavor was a little off. We decided to pour out the juices in the pot and add the Soyaki sauce. It turned out amazing. I tweaked the recipe a bit to achieve the same results without waste. 

Do you enjoy Christmas movies? I love that they are always on TV. We have watched quite a few silly Lifetime ones and our fare share of ABC family movies. There just so darn positive!

Asian Pineapple Pork

What you need:
- 2-3 lbs pork steaks
- 1 can pineapple rings
- 1/2 car of Trader Joe's Soyaki 
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil

In a crock pot add pork, olive oil, and juice of half the can of the pineapple rings. Add a little water if you desire more liquid. Cook 6-8 hours on low, pour out juice and replace with Soyaki. Cook for an additional 30 minutes on low. 

Christmas Blogging Challenge Day 19:

Favorite stocking stuffer: I am boring and really like the useful stuff! I still use the Nivea chap stick from last year- its almost gone. I usually receive things such as hair products, shaving cream, or household products. Its funny but I love that stuff WAY more than candy.
