This recipe comes from a local cookbook called Recipes and Memories of Patrick W. Cox. It's different and tasty. I made a slight change in the ingredients but not much.

This was delicious! My husband was very skeptical but admitted after trying it that it was actually "really good"
next time i will double the recipe for the sauce and pineapples but yes, there will definitely be a next time!

The pictures looked so good, the other reviews were good, I was excited to try this recipe. Unfortunately, non of the eaters enjoyed it. Fortunately, the peanut butter mixture could be scraped off and the meal was saved; the flavor hadn't passed on through the meat. I won't be making this again.

My husband says everything is better with peanut butter or I probably wouldn't have tried this. So glad I did! Yum! Goes in my KEEPER cookbook.
