Recipe by Nimz1466

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!
