MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 13, 2011

"Very easy to make, I did not add the orange zest and let it sit for about an hour vs 8 hours still came out great. Husband LOVED it, he could not tell the pineapple juice was in it (not a fan of pineapples). Next time I plan to double the sauce though. We had it with white rice, very filling."
