Sweet Teriyaki Beef

Sweet Teriyaki Beef
I’ll let you in on a little secret… I use my rice cooker to slow cook a lot more than I use it to make rice. I tend to make rice in big batches and freeze it for later use so that when dinner time comes around my rice cooker also has my main dish covered. The Slow Cook function works as well, if not better, than the slow cooker I used to have and I don’t have to reserve extra counter space to have both. What can I say? I want it all and my rice cooker seems to give it to me! This sweet beef is the perfect break in my dominantly savory slow cooker rotation. It’s perfect over rice, inside tacos topped with a nice slaw or in between a sandwich bun. And make sure to serve it with all the pineapple chunks, they’re the best part!

Ingredients

2-3 lb beef roast
1 cup stir-fry or teriyaki sauce (the thicker the better)
1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks with juice
1 medium onion, chopped

Directions

Add all ingredients to the inner pot of your rice cooker.

Set to Slow Cook for 4 hours. When the rice cooker beeps check for doneness, shred and eat!

  1. Hi! Have just started using my ARC 830ATC for more than just your typical steaming rice and veggies, and it’s starting to bring the cook out of me, and I LOVE IT! That cook has been lying dormant for a long time. I’m wondering, though, how to adapt recipes like this one, or your others that use the “Sautee and simmer” function, for a cooker that only has a “cook” and a “Warm” function.

    1. Hello There! That’s great to hear and we’re glad to inspire you! Some recipes can be adapted for the pot-style cooker you have although it will take some experimenting. Pressing cook to sauté items will work for a quick sauté but may not be powerful enough to brown meat. Slow cook recipes generally come out pretty well using the cook function may take less time to cook. Just keep a closer eye on a recipe you try for the first time in order to make sure things go smoothly!
