    30 beef meatballs
    1 green bell pepper
    2 stalks celery

    3 green onion
    1 20 oz can of pineapple chunks (reserve juice)

    2 tsp soy sauce
    3 tablespoons cornstarch
    1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Tips

Sprinkle the top with toasted sesame seeds for added flavor!


Directions

In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, cook your meatballs (browned if making from scratch, until thawed if from frozen.) In a bowl, combine pineapple juice, sugar, vinegar, and soy sauce. In a small bowl or shaker, mix together cornstarch with 4 tbsp of water. Add to juice mixture. Add juice/cornstarch mixture to skillet and allow to boil briefly to thicken.
