Reviews for Pineapple Pork Stir-Fry
"Liked the flavor, did not add the cayenne pepper. Will use sauce for all my stir-fry'sMade it with chicken."
"This had really great flavor. I will need to cut back on cayenne a little next time. My prego belly can't handle spicy much latley. But very good and would be easy to play around with the ingredients.Thanks for sharing!"
"Really liked this, partially due to the texture of the particular meat I used, but the taste of the dish was really intense, and the cayenne pepper added a perfect amount of heat to it. I personally used a bit less brown sugar than it called for, and I also added minced garlic to the sauce mixture because the wife and I are big Garlic fans. All in all, a great stir-fry; will make again!"
"Simple and tasty!"
"Enjoyed this dish, cayenne gave it a bit of a kick."
"forgot to add did not have carrots but i think you could go crazy with different combos of veggies. different kinds of meat. i used left over pork roast that was already cooked."
"best ever. i used teriyaki sauce and frozen bag of oriental veggies. i minced my own garlic. added a little more pineapple. i would of give it a 5 but tons of sodium. also cooked brown rice in oj . delish"
"I also used chicken and added a little bell pepper that I had left in the fridge. The only reason I gave this recipe four stars is that I thought the soy sauce flavor was a little overpowering. Next time I plan on using the low-sodium soy sauce too. Overall, we thought it was very good."
