I made this up one day when I couldn't find a recipe anywhere with these ingredients. So I kind of threw it together on a whim. Sugar can be adjusted for sweetness, and if the sauce gets a bit thicker than desired I suggest adding a little chicken broth as it's thickening. Serve immediately over rice.

  • Beat pineapple juice and cornstarch together in a bowl using a whisk. Stir brown sugar, cider vinegar, soy sauce, and minced garlic with the pineapple juice until the sugar dissolves into the liquid; pour over the sausage mixture and cook until the sauce thickens, 5 to 8 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Orange juice can replace pineapple juice, if preferred.

Here's the 411; Mix your peppers up, colors look good 1/3 C brown sugar? More like 2 Tbls was plenty 2 Tbls cornstarch? No, just 1 Tbls does the job Added the garlic right after the pineapple, it needs to cook a little. I cut the soy in half too, then added a pinch of S&P. Great! Read More

Hawaiian Sausage Skillet Haiku: "Husband adored this. Too much sweet and goopy sauce, I couldn't eat mine." Made this as directed only using a frozen bag of tri-color bell pepper strips, and starting to brown the sausage b4 adding the veggies so it'd get a little more brown and crispy, the way we like it. The sauce was just sooooo glossy and thick and syrupy sweet. My husband loved it, me, not so much. I'd have to change the ingredient ratio around in order for me to eat it again in the future, and possibly add a veggie like broccoli to make it more of a stir-fry meal. Read More

I thought this recipe was great. I used good quality ingredients and followed the recipe. Sauce amount was perfect for us. My husband liked it and I shared it with my 92 year old mother who enjoyed it as well. I will be making this again. Read More

My husband loves it, but I thought it was a bit too sweet. So I added a chopped jalapeno pepper to the dish and reduced the brown sugar by half. Still sweet, but the added heat from the jalapeno cuts it a bit. Serve it over jasmine rice and it's delicious. Read More

We have an onion allergy in our home, so I just left them out and it was still a big hit! I used fresh pineapple and bell peppers and I cut a bit of the brown sugar to decrease the sweet. Read More

I made a few changes. I cut the brown sugar down to 1/4 cup. Used red bell pepper instead of green for some natural sweetness. Added a pinch if red pepper flakes for a little heat. Served with jasmine rice. I have been making some similar using leftover ham. I also like to serve this with a side of steamed broccoli for a veggie boost Read More
