    Very interesting, turned out as it should , we did enjoy this. I might put chilli flakes - or something - in it another time. Glad I tried though, thank you for sharing. Freezes well, so we have more to enjoy later :) made for Hawaii, Susies World Tour, Fellowship Of The Stove.

    We loved this dish, even my husband who is very picky! The taste is wonderful, not too sweet and just the right amount of soy sauce. It's pretty enough for company too. The only change I would make is to add the peas right at the end next time, so they stay a little crisper and brighter. I used fresh pineapple and a small can of unsweetend pineapple juice. Thank you so much Baby Kato, this is going into my family favorites cookbook!

    This was okay but did not really tickle our tongues. Also, it is not a very attractive dish. I had difficulty keeping the meatballs together but managed to make something resembling them. The sauce thickens very quickly.
