1 lb ground turkey
1 egg white
1/4 c chopped onion
1 tsp salt
Dash of pepper
1 tbsp + 2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp + 2 tbsp corn starch
1 can pineapple chunks, drained (save juice)
1/2 c julienned bell pepper (optional)
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 tbsp brown sugar
3/8 tsp pure stevia powder
6 tbsp water
2. Add bell peppers to skillet at this time, if desired, and saute until crisp tender. Remove from skillet and set aside.
3. If juice saved from pineapple does not equal at least 1 cup, add water to make it equal 1 cup. Pour pineapple juice into skillet meat was cooked in and bring to a boil. (The "yum yums" left over from cooking the meat takes this recipe "up a notch"!) While it reaches boiling point, whisk together vinegar, sugar, stevia, water, remaining soy sauce and remaining corn starch. Once juice boils, add soy sauce mixture and bring to a boil again.
4. Add pineapple chunks and meatballs to sauce and heat through. Serve over quinoa or brown rice if desired.
