    I made this a few nights ago. Served it over multi grain rice. Very yummy and filling. Left overs were good for work lunches for a few days. Freezes well too. - 1/11/09

    This recipe is great! But I did spice it up! I added more ginger and used chopped garlic instead of powder! I also used 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce and 1 tbsp low sodium teriyaki sauce. I also added some red pepper flake for heat. I stir fried some veggies and served it with that.
    Very Very YummY

    Loved this!I served it over white rice and added sauteed broccoli to the dish to up the veggies.
    Also, I never use corn starch to thicken, I have a couple different tricks, but for this recipe I pureed about half a can of carrots w/ some of the pineapple and stirred it in to thicken, upping the veg

    It is the crock pot now - easy to prepare - followed other comments and added minced garlic, ginger and added chili pepper flakes. I also left out the brown sugar since some say too sweet. We will see how it is after work. - 1/20/09

    A little bland for my families tastes, we like foods with more of a kick. Recipe was easy to make and directions easy to follow. Thanks - 12/5/08
