"This recipe has earned a permanent spot on my list of go-to meals! Couple subs I made are- I use jellied cran. sauce instead of whole berry and one of those lunch-size pineapple cups instead of juice and tidbits."

"The sauce was good. I made it without the peppers and served it over white rice. Both my kids ate it without a complaint. I count that a success!"

"Sauce was a hit! I used thin pork loin chops and simmered in the sauce on the stove while the rice was cooking. Served over the rice."
