Well, I thought this would work, but I think the pineapple with the beef kind of set me off. I prefer my traditional pot roast, but wouldn't mind trying this with a pork roast.

Are the above listed nutritional facts for 1 serving correct? They seem rather extreme. With these kinds of numbers this meal can't be good for anyone diabetic or not.

I would love to try this but sounds far too fatty for me. I am not a Diabetic but watch my weight and sugar. No, I won't cook this.
