Here is a delightful recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens 'so good with FRUIT' cookbook.
- 1 (8 ounce) can pineapple chunks
- 1⁄4 green bell pepper, cut into 2-inch strips
- 1 vegetable bouillon cube
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon light soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 (6 1/2 ounce) can albacore tuna, drained
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 (3 ounce) can chow mein noodles
- Drain the can of pineapple, reserving the juice.
- In a saucepan combine 1/3 cup of the pineapple juice [set aside the rest], bell pepper, pineapple chunks, bouillon cube & water.
- Heat the mixture to boiling, then reduce heat & simmer 5 minutes.
- Mix the cornstarch with the remaining pineapple juice, soy sauce, vinegar & sugar, then stir that mixture into the hot pineapple mixture.
- Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thickened & bubbling.
- Add the tuna chunks & butter, carefully stirring. Heat through.
- Heat the chow mein noodles, & spoon the tuna mixture over the noodles before serving.
I made this a bit different by throwing in a flavored tuna package along with the regular tuna. I also used ziti noodles. A very nice change of pace for tuna, will be making again possibly with chicken instead.
Was ok got eaten but wasn't as great as I thought was the flavour a bit over powering. The DD that won't eat tuna ate it which was suprising might make it again not too sure.
Yum! This was so very good and easy to make. I used the entire green pepper and cut it into chunks instead of strips and used chicken broth in place of the bouillion/water and my DH and I absolutely loved it. We ate the entire thing for dinner tonight, he had his over brown rice and I served mine over noodles as kiwidutch had suggested, both ways were terrific! I really enjoyed the sweet sauce combined with the albacore tuna and green peppers! I plan to make often! Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders tag game.
