This is a recipe I found on Taste of Home Site. Adding it here for the ZWT Pacific Island Region. Here is the intro for the recipe: “This easy and delicious recipe came from my sister and has been a family favorite for years,” says Annette Mosbarger in Falcon, Colorado. Pineapple and peppers add color and taste.

I made this in my dutch oven in the oven set at 300 degrees. I think it was in there for about 5 hours. The sauce thickened perfectly, but was a little on the sweet side for me. With the pineapple juice I think I would leave out some of the sugar next time. Great served over rice!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut roast in half; brush with browning sauce if desired. Combine the flour, salt and pepper; rub over meat. Place onion in a 3-qt. slow cooker; top with roast.
  2. Drain pineapple, reserving juice; refrigerate the pineapple. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cornstarch and ginger; slowly whisk in the broth, soy sauce, garlic and reserved pineapple juice until smooth. Pour over meat. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours.
  3. Add pineapple and green pepper. Cook 1 hour longer or until meat and green pepper are tender.
