Sweet and Sour Shrimp
Fall is officially here, which means I'm more than excited to pull my slow cooker out more often. And that means warm, tasty meals without a lot of work...my favorite combination!
So this week I blew the dust off my Crock Pot cookbook and found a fabulous new sweet and sour shrimp recipe to try. This one also takes only 3 hours, so time is an added bonus. I've varied a few ingredients to my personal taste, and I imagine you'll do the same.
1 can sliced peaches in syrup
1/2 cup chopped red peppers
1/2 cup chopped green peppers
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup vegetable broth
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp sesame seed oil
red pepper flakes to taste
1 package frozen snow peas
1 pound cooked shrimp
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/2 cup walnut pieces
rice, cooked to package directions
1. Place first nine ingredients in slow cooker. Cook on low 3-4 hours, on high 2-3 hours. Vegetables will be tender. Stir.
2. Add snow peas and cook on high an additional 15 minutes.
3. Add shrimp, tomatoes and walnuts. Cook on high 4-5 minutes, until shrimp are heated through. Serve over rice.
Please use this recipe as a jumping-off point for your chilly-weather cooking. Pull out those old recipes, give them a new twist and enjoy!
