Hawaiian Meatballs

Image from Google Images

Meatball Mixture

2 lbs. ground beef
3 eggs
2 cups of Rice Krispies, crushed crackers, or bread crumbs (I used Rice Krispies)
1 1/2 tsp. ginger
salt and pepper

To be Added to Browned Meatballs:

13.5 oz can of unsweetened pineapple chunks (put juice aside)
1 large green pepper
1 Red pepper for color (optional and pretty)

The Tangy Sauce

1 cup of brown sugar
2 Tbls. cornstarch
2/3 cup of vinegar
2 Tbls. Soy sauce
Juice from the can of pineapples above

Making the Meatballs:

Mix the meatball ingredients together and blend well with your hands. Get in there and squish it all together. It's your chance to play!

Place on cookie sheets and broil on high heat for about five minutes to brown them. This gets your cookie sheets all dirty and makes a big mess, but all of the extra work is worth making an awesome meal for your family I say! (But let's be real, I rarely say that - LOL)

Once they are brown roll them off of the pans into a roaster. Add the pineapple chunks (set the juice aside) and also add the chopped green peppers chopped.

Turn the oven to 350 degrees.

Quickly wash up your pans because it's easiest to wash them right away.

Preparing the Sauce

Mix the brown sugar and cornstarch in a medium sized pot. Make sure that the two are mixed together well, then you can add your vinegar, soy sauce, and pineapple juice. Turn the element to high heat and mix it until it comes to a boil. It should thicken as soon as it boils.

Note: If you over cook cornstarch, it tends to thicken and then unthicken again. So remove from heat as soon as it thickens. It will be obviously thicker suddenly.

Pour the sauce over the meatballs. Toss the meatballs in the sauce and then place in the oven.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes.

When you take them out of the oven always break a meatball open to see that it's cooked inside.

Serve with rice. Enjoy!!

You are loved by an almighty God,
