  • Heat a large skillet on medium heat and melt the butter or margarine. Evenly sprinkle the remaining 1 tablespoon of brown sugar in the pan. Place the pineapple slices around the outside of the skillet, reserving one ring and leaving a space in the middle for the steak.

  • Place the steak in the middle of the skillet and place one ring of pineapple on top. Once the steak is browned on the bottom, turn over, cover the skillet with a lid, and cook on low for an additional ten minutes.

  • Serve the steak with the sauce from the pan and pineapple rings as garnish.

The recipe was made accordingly the meat was NOT tender at all...but the pineapple and brown sugar "juice" left in the skillet was excellent over the wild and brown rice - THAT juice I will make again but not with the meat Read More

I had to use pork shoulder blade. You should probably pound the meat before putting them in the pinapple juice until they're all even. Read More

The lovely smell of this dish is still hovering in my kitchen. I'm a big fan of cooked pineapple dishes but I rarely cook meat other than chicken. This was a very simple recipe. I used very thin steaks maybe quarter-inch and while the meat wasn't tender it wasn't tough enough to distract me from how delicious it was. The sauce was spectacular. Can't wait to have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Read More

It was just okay. The Eye of Round was still tough and pretty flavorless. Read More

Not BAD! It was pretty good. I could not find a "THIN" eye of round steak so I ended up using a big round sirloin tip steak. Read More
