I halved the recipe for me and hubby and still had plenty left over for lunches etc
Really yummy! Enjoyed the flavours! I would add more pineapple but that’s personal preference. Added plain white rice as a side 🙂

The coating turned out really mushy when I made this tonight. I’m not really sure why ☹️ The sauce flavour was great though! I also didn’t have a lot of runny sauce, but I’m guessing that’s because the coating soaked up a lot of the liquid.

Yum! Cooked this for dinner the other night, paired with the slow cooked fried rice. It was lovely and the meat tender. It needed a wee bit longer cooking time that the recipe stated and I thought the sauce would have been a bit ‘runnier’. I think next time I’ll use a bigger can of pineapple, maybe that was the issue. Otherwise 8/10! thanks for sharing!
