San-J sauces: steak over noodles

Before I went home for Thanksgiving, I helped my mom via telephone navigate the grocery store to buy some food I can keep at her house. I told her which milk substitute to buy (there's only one I drink: Rice Dream Original) and which crackers were good. And then we got to the soy sauce aisle. It is AMAZING to have products where gluten-free is proudly stamped on the front of the label. No further label reading necessary, Mom! Just pick up some gluten free San-J Teriyaki Sauce and Sweet & Tangy Sauce! (This is also part of my secret plan to have my mom enjoy more gluten free products so there are plenty of delicious options already in her cabinets.)
To make this stir fry, we marinated steak in the teriyaki sauce and my mom cooked it on the grill while I got to work on the rice noodles and the rest of the stir-fry. I poured some extra virgin olive oil in the pan and as soon as that was warm (which is MUCH faster on a gas grill than an electric one!!!), I cooked a diced onion. When that was almost done, I tossed in snap peas and large diced pineapple pieces with the Sweet & Tangy sauce. This was an easy and fast meal, filled with carbs, protein, fruits, veggies and flavor!
