Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Omg this was so good. I know I say this every time I make something but this was so flavorful. Ok so I wanted to make some sweet sour meatballs since its been ages since I've had them. Found this recipe on I made a few changes to the recipe listed on the site. I only used half the amount of vinegar, and I added pineapple chunks and green pepper, also garlic power and used Italian bread crumbs and 2 eggs instead of the 1. LOL but besides those minor changes the recipe was the same . The hubbie loved it and it was super easy. I will defiantly make again. Below is my recipe.

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs (Italian style)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 can of pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 green pepper finely sliced
Directions :
  1. mix , ground beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, onion, seasonings, in bowl. Roll into meatballs about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in size.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the meatballs until browned on all sides.Remove from pan and bake @ 350 until done about 10mins.
  3. In skillet saute green pepper put aside.
  4. In a separate medium bowl, mix together the water, vinegar, ketchup, cornstarch, sugar and soy sauce. Pour into pan allow sauce to thicken. Add green pepper, pineapple chunks and meatballs. Continue to heat until the sauce just starts to bubble.
  5. Serve over white rice
