Sweet & Sour Meatballs


  • 25 all-purpose meatballs (frozen is ok)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar loosely packed
  • 1/2 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 1/4 cups pineapple juice
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 small peppers (red, green) chopped (optional)
  • 1 cup drained small pineapple chunks
  • Chopped parsley for garnish
  • Rice for serving


  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup and two cups of the pineapple juice. Bring to a boil.
  • Mix cornstarch and remaining ¼ cup pineapple juice together in a separate small bowl. Use a whisk to remove any lumps.
  • Whisk the cornstarch combination into your skillet. Add the meatballs and chopped peppers. Bring to a simmer and then over and cook 8-10 minutes (until the meatballs are heated through and the sauce thickens).
  • Stir in pineapple chunks.
  • Serve over rice and garnish with parsley to taste.
