Loved this recipe. I added extra smoked garlic cloves and some five-spice powder. Deee-licious! Thanks for posting. mb

This was sooo good. My husband who says he hates pineapple devoured it. I didn't use the green pepper or the crushed pineapple - just the juice. Definitely a keeper!

This was fantastic! I left out the green pepper because I don't like it. I also didn't make the sauce to pour on the cooked roast, but it was still had amazing flavor.
