    HeatherFeather's Note:

    I recently inherited my Great Aunt's recipe collection. This is a recipe from her recipe box that she clipped out of the Chicago Tribune. It had won the "$5 Favorite Recipe prize." From the splatters on the clipping, I imagine my Aunt enjoyed this one. These days,I might try browning the meat in a little olive oil instead of the bacon drippings. Despite the name, I doubt this is a traditional Polynesian dish, but rather is one inspired by Polynesian cuisine.

      I followed the recipe but I did half everything for the 2 of us. I really enjoyed this but DH didn't,he expected something sweeter, more like the jar of Uncle Bens sweet and sour sauce. I served it over rice. Thanks for posting the recipe.

      Heather, this recipe is delicious. I used some left over pork tenderloin, that I had made earlier in the week and had frozen, Cut it into 1 inch cubes sauted in olive oil, then made it as the recipe said, but used only 2 cand of tomato sauce, this worked perfect. I added the juice from the pineapple after adding the tomato sauce and let it simmer for 30 minutes or longer, then add the pineapple just before serving. Served over brown rice. So yummy, DH sure loved it. Thank you for posting your Aunt's recipe.
