Made this for dinner last night. The recipe didn’t state when to add the pineapple pieces so I just added them with the juice. I felt that they were ‘overcooked’ by the end and didn’t have that fresh flavour. Next time I would add them near the end of cooking time. The meatballs were a little bland but overall was a nice dish. I think it just needs some minor tweaking to make it really worthwhile. Thanks for the recipe.
