I have used this recipe for the last 36 years was given to me at my bridal shower. I omit the juice off the pineapple as it tends to be too sweet. As we are diabetic I use 1/4 cup brown sugar substitute. Sometimes I add sliced hot dog to it also. I usually get asked to bring this to pot-luck dinners make it for camping etc. My husband loves it cold. Read More

I was really disappointed with this recipe. Even with the unusual combination of ingredients I had high hopes due to the great reviews. No one in my family liked this. But...I think that's because it was very very sweet. The best way to describe it is like a sweet and sour chili. Read More

This was fantastic. We also used crushed pineapple. It was a bit thin. I think it could have used less syrup from the canned pineapple but it was still great. Even my VERY picky 5 year old liked it. It's also great the next day. Read More

Great my family loved it. Easy to make and wonderful to eat. I made a double recipe and used crushed pineapple for one of the cans. We think that the flavor is better with the crushed but also like to see the chunks. Use both. Read More

We really enjoyed this meal tonight. I used fresh pineapple with no pineapple juice and I would consider decreasing the bean juice also. I put it in a 9x13 for 30 min instead of 45 (hungry kids!) and it was heated through well. This may also be yummy over some rice or with something starchy...according to my husband. But I thought it was delicious as is. Read More

I wasn't quite sure on the combination of kidney beans with pineapple when I read this but decided to go for it. This was very tasty and not overly sweet turned out a little like a hawaiian chili. Delicious served over rice. Read More

This was an excellent dish to serve for our Hawaiian theme potluck dinner. Everyone enjoyed the taste. Next time I make this I will use a little less pineapple juice in the casserole. I had to bake it a little longer to soak up the juice. Read More

This was a yummy dish! I served it with Jasmine rice and Hawaiian dinner rolls. I was a little unsure about the sweetness of the pineapple and the onions and beef but it went together very well. We had leftovers for lunch the next day and it was even better. Next time I will make it the day before and let it marinate together overnight. Thank you!! Read More
