this recipe is an easy one for the holidays, potlucks at work, or just dinner/supper like im having tonight. i serve it with rice and a veggie.
im giving you the regular sauce/glaze recipe, but i double it for the amount of meatballs i make and i love the sauce for my rice.
SWEET n SOUR MEATBALLS
1 can 20oz of pineapple chunks in pineapple juice
1/3 cup water
3 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons corn starch
30+ precooked meatballs (i get mine from the frozen section)
(green pepper optional---ive never done it)
Drain the pineapple reserving the juice to make 1 cup of liquid. If the juice doesn't come out to be 1 solid cup, add water to get ya to that 1 cup mark.
To make the sauce:
pour your 1cup of pineapple juice into large saucepan/skillet.
add the vinegar, water, soy sauce, brown sugar and corn starch. mix on med/low heat until sauce thickens into a nice glaze.
Add the meatballs and pineapple chunks to the sauce. Stir well to coat the meatballs.
Toss into a crock pot and let it cook/heat for a few hours. (of course you could probably leave this on the stove top to simmer)
YEP, that's it!! super simple and delicious! the sauce/glaze is SOOO good you'll see what i mean about doubling it!!! ENJOY!
