Nice rich flavor. I used fresh pineapple, as I had one handy. I doubled the recipe, added 2 cups of water and baked for 2 hours at 325 degrees. Delicious. :) Made for ZWT 3.

The onion-pineapple mixture gave a deep, slightly fruity taste to the beef which was quite good. The recipe didn't state whether or not to use the juice from the pineapples so I used only a very small amount. In hindsight, this was a mistake since it was a dominant flavor needed for this recipe. I should have known better. The dish was still quite good but next time I will use crushed pinapples since the family complained about the pineapple chunks. The flavor of the beef was very good and I will make again. It was very easy to put together. Thanks!
