    I made this for my family this evening. I followed the recipe to the letter and just used granulated sugar instead of soft brown sugar. They loved it, especially my son who said it was delicious. Usually he does not like fruit in stir fry dishes but he ate all the pinapple. Will definately be making this again and again!  -  07 Oct 2010
