Sweet 'n' Sour Sausage Stir Fry


POINTS: 5
MAKES: 4 servings
CRISPY RATING: Yummy, not fake sweet like from a Chinese restaurant

Ingredients
  • 14 oz turkey kielbasa, cut in 1/2 " slices
  • 1 small white onion, quartered and separated
  • 1 cup thinly sliced carrot
  • 15 ounces pineapple chunks in juice, save juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 6 tablespoons water, or a bit less
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • Hot cooked rice-optional

1. In a large nonstick skillet stir-fry sausage for 3-4 min or until slightly browned. Add onion,and carrots; stir-fry until crisp tender.

2. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Add pineapple to meat mix.

3. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and ginger. Stir in water, soy sauce, and pineapple juice until smooth. Add to skillet.

4. Bring to boil; cook and stir for 1-2 min until thickened.

5. Serve over rice if desired. (Add points for rice.)


MY NOTES AND THOUGHTS:

1. I imagine you could trade out the sausage for any type of meat you like, though you'll have to adjust the points.

2. It has a great flavor - a little sweet, a little spicy, and not sickly sweet like what you get from Chinese restaurants now-a-days.
