Last night for Dinner...

I have found that for some reason a lot of people are kind of FreAked out about Meatballs. I don't know exactly why, but seriously these are totally worth going out of your comfort zone & trying! They are the perfect mix of flavor. You wont be disappointed!

WhaT yoU'll NeEd...

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
2/3 cup saltine cracker crumbs
1/4 cup minced onion
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ginger powder


2 TBSP cornstarch
1/2 cup brown sugar
1-13 oz. can pineapple chunks (reserve syrup)
1/3 cup white vinegar
1 TBSP soy sauce
1 chopped bell pepper (optional)

WhaT yOu Do...

In a medium bowl mix together meat, crackers, onion, egg, salt & ginger. Mix well- just get in there with your's not gonna kill ya! But, if you're like my mom & get crazy if stuff gets under you nails, feel free to through on a pair of latex gloves. Mix well & form into balls. They don't have to be a certain size, just make sure they are all pretty close to the same so they cook evenly.

Heat 1-2 TBSP oil in a large pot or skillet. Add meatballs & brown- turning occasionally . When brown, remove from pan onto a plate(you're gonna put them back in the pot in just a minute.)

In a small bowl mix cornstarch & brown sugar. Then add pineapple juice, vinegar & soy sauce. Mix well. Pour into hot pot or skillet. Bring to a boil & cook until thickened. Add meatballs back in as well as pineapple & bell pepper.

Serve with white rice...I live Calrose Sticky rice!!!
