Yummy this is absolutely delicious 😋😍 Super simple recipe and super tasty. I added a can of pineapple pieces and the juice an hour before serving and it gave a lovely sweet taste to the end result. I also sprinkled some sesame seeds on top and served with white rice. Next time i will also add some chopped shallots. Very impressed with this one, thanks so much for sharing it with us Meg 😁

My family absolutely love this. I add a few extra vegetables but the meal itself is always a winner and never anything left . If there is any left the teenage son doesn’t allow it to last the night. Thankyou for this recipe 😊

Very yummy scrummy. My family liked it alot. I think it would be good if the brown sugar were cut and replaced with chunk pineapple with juices included.

Cooked this recipe. Very good. I think it could be given a twist with some pineapple added in. Perhaps take out the brown sugar and add in both pineapple juice and the juice from the can.

I would think so yes if you like to 🙂

Looks yummy! I am a little confused as the picture looks to have sesame seeds in it? Do you just sprinkle those on at the end?
