This is a quick, tasty recipe that everyone seems to like for lunch or dinner. Seeded buns are preferred at my house; No one likes the "wimpy" ones!

This had a good flavor but was too runny for our tastes.We like our sauces thick and clingy and this one just ran off and soaked the buns. DD ate it better off of the bun entirely.I liked the combination of the root beer and the pineapple. It was different than the usual.
