  1. Marinate the steak in bowl with pineapple juice for 25 minutes. After marinating, remove the steak from the juice and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of brown sugar on each side. Discard the pineapple juice.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Serve the steak with the sauce from the pan and pineapple rings as garnish.

Pretty good. I added extra brown sugar to the sauce.

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

Good! I cut the beef in thin strips and it turned out great. Would make again.

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.

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!

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

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.
