    This recipe seemed like it would provide a nice change of pace from heavier dishes now that things are warming up. But I think it could be vastly improved fairly easily.

    The juices from the meat and vegetables added a lot of liquid to the cooker, which would have made a nice sauce if it had been thicker. I removed some of the broth, added a couple of tablespoons of cornstarch, and cooked until thick, then stirred it back into the pot. It really wasn’t enough to substantially thicken it, and taking the time to try some cornstarch had already delayed dinner, so I just served it. Another cookbook I have uses instant tapioca for slow cooker sauces, and every dish I’ve made that calls for it turns out well. It doesn’t break down over a long cooking period.

    I think, too, that adding the pineapple separately at the end, and just heating it through, would have made the flavor better. Maybe even doing the broccoli that way as well would have helped. I don’t mind a simple addition, particularly if I’ve already done any prep work it would require. As it was, the flavor was overall kind of bland and homogenous. Not terrible – just not as good as the ingredients seemed to promise.
