My husband is mere putty in my hands when I make this! I make new recipes ALL THE TIME, and sometimes he forgets if he's had it before, but not this one. This has a nice light taste, fresh green beans and simple boiled red skinned potatoes would be a nice side dish.

I really enjoyed this recipe. It was easy to prepare and the sauce was a good balance of sweet and sour. The ground ginger added a nice flavor. It would probably be even better with fresh ginger. I made it with fresh pineapple instead of canned, and slivered a green pepper that I threw into the sauce at the end. I used orange juice instead of pineapple juice (I didn't have any, but it still turned out well - I imagine it would be even better with the pineapple juice. I made it with rice to absorb even more of the sauce, and had cucumber marinated in rice vinegar and sugar as a side dish. Thanks for a keeper!
