This is so easy and delicious. Followed directions for cooking rice but I added the drained pineapple juice (app. 1 C), 1/4 C soy sauce and cut green onions, then added water to make proper amount for cooking. Have also added sliced onion and carrots. A regular go-to dish.

This recipe is great. I have substituted chicken for the beef and added broccoli and it still turned out great. You can't go wrong with this recipe, I'm glad I found it again.

My mother makes this at least once a month and its definitely a family favorite. The only downside is having to smell the delicious smell for hours before its ready! She also adds some onions in for more flavoring. It's amazing!

The recipe was generally good, but I added a red pepper for coloring and an onion as my family likes onions. But will serve this again. Thanks for sharing.
