Beef Pineapple Teriyaki Skewers
Sometimes I like to play with fire, and I don't mean the hot orange and blue stuff. There are things that most people following a low carb way of eating probably shouldn't eat a lot of, even if it's a whole natural food. Obvious ones are potatoes and rice, but fruits often fall into that list of taboos. Pineapple is amongst one of the sugary sweetest fruits out there! But ...
BUT! ... I consider this to be a small appetizer. Just don't eat too much! Being an appetizer, the portions are small and the pineapple is tiny. Portion control is built into the dish. It's just enough to satisfy any sweet tropical cravings that you may have been having, without much of an impact on your blood sugars.
This is a sweet grilled beef and teriyaki skewer, where the teriyaki is sugar free, but the pineapple's natural fruit sugars can get a NICE rich charring for that deep glazy caramelized flavor.
