Turkey-Pineapple Stir-Fry for a Vaccuum

The best ever!! So Carlos brought me a vacuum yesterday and to say thank you I made dinner.  I thought about grilling but it was nasty weather all day, well until we got home.  But, I already had the ingredients for a good stir fry so stir fry it was.  And it was gooooood!  I found the original recipe here.  And here is what I did...

Turkey-Pineapple Stir-Fry 

3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoon cornstarch
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
3 medium carrots, thinly sliced
2 cups fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 medium yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
1 medium sweet onion, cut into strips
12 ounces frozen pea pods, thawed
12 ounces cooked turkey breasts, cut into pieces
3 cups hot cooked brown rice

For sauce: In a small bowl, stir together chicken broth, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, and garlic; set aside.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add carrots and pineapple; cook for 3 minutes. Add onion and peppers. Cook and stir about 2 minute more or until vegetables are crisp-tender.  Push vegetables from center of skillet. Stir sauce; add to center of skillet. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add turkey and pea pods; heat through. Serve with hot cooked brown rice.

Mmmmm.... you will thank me later!

After dinner we took Preston for a little walk around the duck pond.  It was great to be able to enjoy the evening since the rain had gone and the sun was shining.
