I discovered this recipe in our community newspaper and made a few changes to suit our tastes.  This makes good use of an economy cut of beef which is baked for a long, slow time and comes out of the oven juicy, tender and flavorful.  I like to serve this with seasoned brown rice and a broccoli/carrot/garlic sauté.

REALLY GOOD GINGER BEEF


1-1/2# chuck or round steak, cut into cubes

¼ cup hot water

Approx 1 tsp grated fresh ginger

½ Tblsp. minced garlic

¼ cup teriyaki sauce

1 large onion, sliced

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Brown beef in a small amount of olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet.  Add water, ginger, garlic and teriyaki sauce, mixing well.  Spread sliced onions over the top of the beef mixture and bake covered @ about 300 degrees for 3-4 hours.  If meat is getting done beforehand, reduce heat and keep warm.  A small amount of water can be added if needed.

Yield:  4 dinner-sized portions
