This was just ok. Very sour. Probably won't make again.
This is awesome! Next time I'll double the recipe to have leftovers! Also, used only 1 T. of red wine vinegar. May add some more veggies next time, but either way, this is a definite keeper!
This is a very easy to prepare recipe. The only things I did differently were to use fresh pineapple instead of canned and also I added a small can of sliced water chestnuts and a small can of sliced bamboo shoots and served it over rice vermicelli instead of regular rice. I tripled the recipe so that both my husband and I would have enough for quick lunches for a couple of days. The kids don't care for left-overs, but we DO!
We all enjoyed this meal, but I had to double the recipe to get enough for my large family! It was a bit tangy, so I may use less vinegar next time! We like it a little more sweet and a bit less sour! :)
Liked that I had all the ingredients on hand for this recipe but would rate the flavour as average. Not enough bite to it.
