Did You Know...
Cornstarch doesn't mix well into hot liquids, especially soups and stews. Stirring the cornstarch into the reserved pineapple juice before adding it to the stew helps prevent lumps.
Special Touch
To make this great stew extra-special, just sprinkle with sliced green onions and toasted coconut or chopped peanuts or cashews.
