I tossed the meat in 2 Tbsp of cornstarch instead of 1.
I still used 1 Tbsp with the pineapple
I ended up checking it after 4 hours and it was totally done, the meat was melt in your mouth tender.
I tried it out on my husband Jay, daughters Brooke and Falon, son-in-law Chris and grand-daughter Devi. I served it on a healthy portion of brown rice. Everyone loved it.
All loved the overall taste, some loved the meat and one loved the pineapple the most. Jay felt there could have been more onion. I will definitely make this again, however I would probably double it so that I can serve more family members and I will use fresh onion next time!
