I adapted this from a recipe for Hawaiian Beef that used the ground beef to make little meatballs. I wanted to make it faster so I just browned the beef.
This dish was a great favourite with my family. As each child left home for their own place, they asked for this recipe to take with them. They have told me that this has been very popular at pot-lucks and for dinner with friends.
The pineapple gives a brightness to this dish and the beans provide healthy fiber.
