News Release: Land O’Lakes Introduces Teriyaki Flavor to Sauté Express® Sauté Starter Line

Land O’Lakes is expanding its successful line of Sauté Express® Sauté Starters with the addition of Teriyaki. Sauté Express® Sauté Starters are an innovative, all-in-one combination of seasoned butter and spices that cook and flavor any vegetable or protein—such as chicken, pork, shrimp or tofu—in one easy step.

The new Teriyaki offering brings the bold flavors of ginger and sesame to the Asian dishes families already love. With Sauté Express® Sauté Starter, home cooks can have dinner on the table in just 30 minutes or less, making it a convenient mealtime solution for families on the go.

Families today crave a wider-than-ever variety of dishes. Younger consumers, who grew up with some of the most adventurous palates of any generation, list Asian dishes, like stir-fries, lettuce wraps and noodle bowls, among their comfort foods. And, when they cook at home, they want to serve their families the dishes they enjoy when they eat out—but without the fuss of stocking up on extra ingredients. Teriyaki Sauté Express® Sauté Starter is versatile enough to be used in a wide variety of favorite Asian dishes.

“Consumers have been telling us they want more Asian flavors. I’m so excited to share Teriyaki Sauté Express® Sauté Starter—and all the new recipes we have developed,” says Becky Wahlund, director of the Test Kitchen at Land O’Lakes. “It’s satisfying to unwrap one square and watch it sizzle and bubble in the pan. When I’m craving a stir-fry, I know that I’ve got all the flavor I need in one little square, without any extra measuring or prep work.”

The new Teriyaki flavor will be available in the dairy case this fall. Sauté Express® Sauté Starter is available in four other flavors: Garlic & Herb, Italian Herb, Lemon Pepper and Savory Butter & Olive Oil. Each 1-ounce square combines the fresh flavors of butter, herbs and spices.

Sauté Express® Sauté Starter has a suggested retail price of $3.79 for a single-flavor package of six 1-ounce squares. Each square cooks one-half pound of protein, or about two chicken breasts, two pork chops or two fish fillets. For more information, visit
