My friend George lives in Pahala on da Big Island. He's the one who first taught me how to cook in hot weather. This is one of his staples.

This was pretty darn good! I expected the meat to stay in the strips but it kind of fell apart into small bits, but still very tasty. I added a small amount of crushed red pepper to give a bit of a kick - I may try some sliced jalepeno or serrano pepper next time. I served as suggested with chappatis (#39198 Chappatis (Roti) by Ranikabani) and sangria (#245611 White Sangria by boomette1) - what a great meal!
- 2 lbs top round steaks, trimmed of fat and cut into thin strips across the grain (It's easier to slice thinly if it's partially frozen)
- 2 yellow onions, quartered and sliced
- 1⁄2 cup beef stock (homade is best)
- 5 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon garlic granules
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 teaspoon real Hungarian paprika (Find a spice shop that sells da kin' , the real kind)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1 green bell pepper, julinne
- 1 red bell pepper, julinne
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons cornstarch

- 3 large garden tomatoes, cut into wedges
- 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, reserve liquid
