Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    Meatballs:
    1 lb hamburger
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 c. dry bread crumbs(I use 1 piece of whole wheat bread toasted and put into the food processor)
    1 egg
    2 Tbsp onion, minced
    1/4 c milk
    1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
    Shape into meatballs and bake on cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 15 minutes

    Sauce:
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1 can pineapple chunks or tidbits with the juice
    1 Tbsp corn starch
    1 Tbsp soy sauce
    1/3 c vinegar
    1/2 cup green pepper,diced



Directions

Mix together meatball ingredients. Shape into meatballs and bake on cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Make sauce in a large skillet, combining all ingredients except green pepper. Stirring constantly, heat to boiling. Turn down heat and add meatballs. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes, stir occasionally. Add green peppers at end and serve over rice.

Makes 6 servings.

(This is also just a great meatball recipe to serve with BBQ sauce or marinara sauce. If so bake for 25-30 minutes, turning once.)

Number of Servings: 6

    It was really good! I didn't have canned pineapple, but I had a can of fruit cocktail, of which I added a cup. Very delicious! I also baked the meatballs for about 30 minutes, after 15 minutes I checked them, turned them over, and cooked an additional 15. I also simmered them for one hour. - 9/27/09

    My husband said he would be happy if I made this once a week. Everyone seemed to enjoy. I added some shredded carrots to the sauce. - 9/25/09

    I made this two days ago, and I thought it was very tasty. Somethng different, as most of us are used to sweet and sour pork or chicken. Also, fairly easy to make. I like the idea of baking the meatballs, and will use this method from now on if I wanna add them to spaghetti sauce. - 11/5/09
