    JillAZ's Note:

    This is one of my daughter's favorite meals. We use chicken, the original recipe called for pork shoulder. This freezes very well. For an even quicker dinner, precook and freeze the rice in a separate baggie. If making and serving on the same night. Allow 45 minutes for the meat to marinate.

      This was pretty good. I will say however that the pineapple seemed to soak up a ton of the salt from the soy sauce and made it very bitter to eat. I think next time we will add the pineapple at the very end and not freeze it all together.

      Made this with pork. Marvelous and easy sauce! However, this does not feed six. I added double the vegs, and added a chunked carrot. Family would have preferred more meat.

      I tried this recipe tonight and it was just okay. For me it wasn't sweet enough, a little too much on the sour side. I felt that it was missing something, maybe salt. This recipe will not feed 6.

      I don't know if I will cook this again. I always have most of the ingredients on hand so if I am in a hurry, maybe.
