    Trisha W's Note:

    I really enjoy the sweet and sour flavor on a variety of foods (pineapple and green pepper just go together well esp. with vinegar and sugar). I have already submitted my sweet and sour pork chops, so here it is for the beef.

      Nice! My husband especially liked it, and even commented on how colorful it was! :) I used 20 oz can of pineapple and just used 1/2 cup juice and 1/2 cup water, but I think it would have been fine to use the full amount of juice from the can. I might like the green pepper cooked through a bit more and might saute it up next time and see how that is. I used the (10 oz jar) cherries and frozen meatballs like previous reviewers did. I might try pineapple tidbits next time. And I know this sounds crazy, but I might chop up some spam and throw it in next time for a bit of saltiness to counteract the sweet (Did you know Spam is very popular in Hawaii?). Thanks for the fun new recipe!
