Are you detecting a trend? Yup, we're super-big meatball fans here. Or at least the kiddos are and we've been reluctantly recruited to the meatball side. Almost every week we're having something meatball based: either it's our Ikea Meatball Sauce Hack, good Ol' Spaghetti and Meatballs or (my favourite): these Simple Sweet & Sour Meatballs.
Sweet and Sour Meatballs Recipe
1 can (14 oz) pineapple chunks (with juice reserved)
3 Tbsp cider vinegar (or white vinegar will work too)
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 Tbsp corn starch
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1 cup carrots, diced
1 large red bell pepper, cut into 1/2 inch pieces (I used yellow for the photo above, it's still yummy, but less purdy)
approx 30 cooked Meatballs (frozen prepared or our recipe - coming soon)
- Drain the pineapple juice from the can into a measuring cup. Bring the level up to 1 cup by adding water.
- In a large pot, over medium heat, combine the juice mixture, vinegar, soy sauce and brown sugar. Mix. Stir in cornstarch and ginger until smooth. Cover and cook until thickened (about 5 minutes or less).
- Stir in carrots. Let simmer 5 minutes. Add pineapple chunks, red pepper and meatballs. Gently stir to coat the meatballs. Simmer, uncovered, for about 20 minutes (or until meatballs are warmed through).
- Enjoy (with rice)!
