Tasty sauce and easy to make. However, I found the pork a bit dry...think it was overcooked, and I didn't think there was quite enough sauce (I like to use the sauce with my rice too). If I try it again I would not re-add the meat until the pineapple goes in and may reduce the 10 minutes cooking time in that step. I would also increase the sauce ingredients.
really good....i didnt have crushed pineapple so i used tidbits and crushed them myself, still worked...a little bit on the sweet side, but i made a savory fried rice to go with it so it balanced it out!
Big hit, family loved it, I loved that it was easy, and healthy. I added a mix of veggies, over steamed rice. Simple, quick..
