"A great take on a Hawaiian-style dinner. This one's great for that leftover ham. Cubed ham sauteed with onions and pineapple in a sweet sauce. Kids love it and it's great served over rice or noodles."

Loved this-the sauce was great over rice.
I really hate to give someone's recipe a bad review but for me it just didn't cut it. Some people say that the sauce is too sweet but all I could taste was the vinegar. I was really looking forward to making this recipe based on most of the reviews, unfortunately it just didn't turn out that good. I followed the recipe for the sauce exactly and added chunks of green pepper and onions with the ham and pineapple.
SUPER EASY AND SUPER QUICK MEAL. I bought 1# of Virginia Baked Ham at the grocery store deli when it was on sale and cubed it for this recipe. NOTE: there is not enough pineapple juice in the can of chunks - you will have to add real juice or open extra pineapple - I stir fried the ham, pineapple and onions till they started to brown - which made it have more of grilled taste. We ate it over white rice and it was delicious!
I added some shredded carrots and diced up a jalepeno to add. That made it PERFECT because otherwise it would have been too sweet. It gave it a bite (but one my 2 year old could handle) and the sauce toned down the jalepeno. The sauce is pretty thick but still good. We had it over white rice. I only had 3/4 cup of pineapple juice, so I added apple juice to make it the right amount.
Not bad, but make sure you plan on eating it all in one sitting as it is very starchy textured as a leftover. If I ever make it again I think i'd use less cornstarch and just make it thicker by heating it longer... Did not have any green onions at the time, so used half a small white onion. I added frozen brocolli and green peas, and served this over brown and wild rice cooked with veggie broth. I also used a stone ground dijon mustard. Was a good sweet flavor and the lover of ham and pineapple (separately) in the house loved it :)
Really easy to make. I made this while camping, and the ham was the only special "cooler" item required. A great camping meal, quick, easy, and it tasted great.
This was really quick with a nice flavor. Great for a quick dinner after a busy day.
I made this exactly as the recipe. I thought it was delicious, my husband didn't complain but found it a little sweet. Will definitely make this again the next time I have leftover ham. It was very quick with nice presentation.
