Hula Joes

(Subtitle: This actually IS a 30 minute meal!)

I like Rachel Ray's recipes and her magazine, though I'm not a fan of her show. But it always seems to take me way longer than 30 minutes to whip up one of her 30 minute meals. (they also make the largest four servings I have ever seen.)

This one actually came together really fast.And it was SO, so good. Sweet and tangy and delicious! We served it on challah rolls with steamed baby carrots.

-3 tbsp brown sugar
-3 tbsp red wine vinegar (I used rice vinegar)

-1 cup tomato sauce
-1 cup pineapple tidbits, halved, or fresh chopped pineapple
