This was good, good flavor. The sauce was very thin so I did have to add cornstarch to thicken it. I also added slivered carrots, gave it a little color.

This really is easy to make and very tasty. It has a lot of liquid. So next time I will drain some of the juice off the pineapples and/or add some corn starch to thicken it a bit.
