I WAS FORTUNATE to visit my grandmother's birthplace in Hawaii, where I met relatives who taught me how to make this dish. It's been a family favorite since I brought the recipe home. The pineapple is a sweet surprise. -Jeanette Babineau, Grand Junction, Colorado

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 27, 2013

I agree with the previous review the taste of the mustard is to strong, it over powers all of the other flavors. Next time I will only use 1 tablespoon of mustard. Other than that it was easy to make & good !

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 21, 2012

This had way too much mustard for my taste and I like mustard. I ended up making twice the amount of sauce but with half the amount of mustard. I wasn't sure if pineapple was supposed to be drained so I added half the juice from the can. I really liked it with these minor adjustments.
