Turkey Teriyaki

Sometimes it's fun to spend a Sunday in the kitchen preparing a meal and other times it's fun to spend the day outside enjoying the beautiful weather while it lasts.  I went for the second option.  This turkey basically cooks itself in the crock pot once you pour the sauce on top of it.  I just turned the tenderloins occasionally so they cooked evenly and were easy to fork shred.






Turkey Teriyaki

2 turkey tenderloins
1 cup pineapple

In a small saucepan combine ~

1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
2 tbsp corn starch

Cook over medium heat, whisking until it thickens.  When it's thickened, add in 3 tbsp honey.  Pour over the turkey tenderloins and cover.  Cook over medium heat for at least 4 hours, turning occasionally.  Fork shred the meat and discard the pineapple.  I do recommend you serve it with fresh pineapple if over rice.  Top with green scallions if desired.

Serve over rice or toast some Hawaiian Rolls and serve as sandwiches.
