Sweet and Sour Meatballs

This is a fast easy recipe – especially if your meatballs are pre-made. I’m a huge fan of sweet and sour chicken, but I think the meatballs are fun and give sweet and sour a nice change.

1 can (20 ounces) pineapple chunks
1/3 cup water
3 Tbsp vinegar
1 Tbsp soy sauce
½ cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp cornstarch
1 batch of 30 meatballs
1 large green or red pepper, cut into pieces
Hot cooked rice

Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Set aside. Add water to juice if needed to measure 1 cup. Pour into large skillet. Add 1/3 cup water, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, and cornstarch. Stir until smooth. Cook over medium heat until thick, stirring constantly. Add pineapple, meatballs, and green pepper. Simmer uncovered for 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve over rice.
