Sweet n Sour Meatballs

I just put these meatballs in the crock pot and thought....hmph...its been awhile since i shared some yummy recipes with my friends in blogland.


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. 


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!

We make this too, although I have not done it in the crock pot. I love it! (We call it Hawaiian Meatballs)
We have stopped doing meatballs though and use ground beef cooked and then add some soy sauce to it.
I will have to try it this way.

Ooohh. Yummy.. I like AJ Dub's idea too.. making it with ground beef or what about chicken? Eh?? Dang.. now I'm hungry again.

I make this a bunch now thanks to you! My husband and I LOVE it! and you're totally right about the sauce. :) I'm even taking it to the Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild sew-in today!
