Reviews for Polynesian Roast Beef
"'Cause i'm allergic i substitute the pineapples for mandarin oranges it was amazing i make it every chance i get"
"We liked this recipe at our home. We did omit the green peppers and I used chunked pineapple and like that a bit more so everyone could have the pineapple. It looked just as good on the serving plate as well."
"We like the taste of the beef. I forgot the peppers but it was good anyway. Nice to a recipe on hand to mix this up a bit."
"I think I sliced the onions a little too thin because they just sort of dissolved into the juices and I omitted the peppers because none of us like them...but this was delicious!"
"Well I'm not one to modify recipes but I did this with a pork tenderloin instead of beef and it's was awesome. Will try it with beef in the future.Thank YOU!!!"
"debcal1946, the cooking time should stay the same. If you're concerned about the turkey getting fully cooked, add up to 2 hours on low or 1 hour on high."
"This sounds like a great recipe for a turkey roast as well. Any idea on how that would change the cooking time?"
