Top Review by Miss Tinkerbell

I just got a dutch oven today and had london broil in the fridge that I needed to cook up for dinner. This recipe was spot on. I followed the recipe with the exception of onions, garlic and mushrooms because of allergies and personal preference. And I added extra pineapple because we love it. Plus added green peppers and carrots. delicious and simple. Thank you! Definitely a keeper.
