Awesome!!! My wife and I really enjoy rice dishes, this was extraordinary!! We will definitely make this again. My wife and I do not care for green bell pepper, however I went ahead and used an entire red one. I think next time I will put some green onions in for flavor and appearance. Good job!!!

It is a flavorful dish without being packed with calories. I added green onions as suggested and I cooked mine in a rice cooker. I like the well-balanced flavor. It's impressive looking yet so easy to prepare. Thank you for sharing your recipe.

We thought this was a tasty and colorful rice dish, Dancer^. I liked the subtle sweetness from the pineapple juice. I followed your directions and made no changes. 5-stars for flavor, presentation and ease of preparation. Thanks for posting this recipe.

Followed the directions precisely and was looking forward to this dish based on the glowing reviews and were sadly disappointed. Won't be making this again.

I had really high hopes for this, but it turned out horribly. I followed the measurements and directions precisely, but the salty, hot pineapple flavor was not good and I am not, personally, a big fan of soggy boiled bell peppers. The boiled onions were not a highlight either. We ate a couple bites and threw the rest in the trash. If I were to make this again I would try sauteeing the veggies first and adding them at the end, rather than over-boiling them with the rice and not adding more than a pinch of salt. I think that maybe lowering the saltiness would help the flavor of the pineapple. Sorry.
