"Very good! I thickened a hit with cornstarch as some suggested & it was good. Next time I might add a bit more pineapple. It's a keeper."

"Love the simplicity! The sauce needs a little more 'zing' - I thickened it, and next time will probably add a little black or red pepper to liven it up."

"Very easy to make and very tasty. The sauce could have had a little more flavor though. I ended up adding some more soy sauce to my individual serving. I will thicken the sauce next time with some water and cornstarch. Would definitely make again!"
