This was better than I could have imagined!! My hubby and 5 kids LOVED IT! I didn't use pineapple though. Not a huge fan of it. I did, however, add some crushed red pepper flakes and some brown sugar to the sauce. I used 2 lb. of pork tenderloin, and 2 lb. of chicken and 14 oz. of shrimp. There was more than enough sauce. I will definitely make this again. It's like takeout but soo much fresher and we didn't have to go out to get it!! Thanks Michelle!
