I can’t believe I haven’t blogged about this recipe before! This is hands down one of our family’s favorite stir fry recipes. I love a traditional teriyaki over chicken and rice, but this sticky coconut sauce is so amazing you will want to drink it. It is a little spicy, a lot of sweet, and absolutely creamy and delicious! You can serve this over any combination of vegetables and/0r meat. Our favorite thing to do in the summer time (or anytime!) is skewer several different vegetables on shishkabob sticks and grill them over a hot grill. If you don’t want to grill, or yours is covered in snow like ours has been lately, just place the vegetables on a greased cookie sheet and broil them until they are slightly tender, but not over cooked. You can cook the chicken anyway you would like, but I prefer to grill the chicken as well when able. Serve the cooked chicken and vegetables all over hot sticky rice and drizzle with sauce. Voila! Healthy and delicious! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
- Calrose or long rain rice, cooked
- Red bell pepper
- Yellow & orange bell peppers
- Green bell pepper
- Fresh pineapple (or canned)
- Beef steak
- 1 Tbs. fresh ginger, minced or grated
- 1 tsp. black pepper
- 1/4-1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes (depending how spicy you like it)
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 can coconut milk
- 3/4 cup rice vinegar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 Tbs. cornstarch
- Cut the vegetables into bite sized pieces. You can skewer these veggies or just broil on a cookie sheet with a little olive oil and salt and pepper.
- Marinate your meat in some of the coconut sauce (optional) or just grill the meat and season with salt and pepper.
- Cook the rice in a slow cooker while the sauce is cooking.
- For the sauce: In a saute pan, whisk together all of the ingredients except the coconut milk. Place over medium heat and simmer at a low boil until sauce begins to thicken. Once the sugar is dissolved and the sauce is beginning to thicken (this could take 8-10 minutes), add the coconut milk and continue to simmer until the sauce is thick and smooth. Serve the warm sauce over the meat, vegetables and rice.
