Recipe Ingredients for Hawaiian Meatballs

12 ounces lean ground beef, net from 1 lb ground beef (23560)
6 oz cooked ground turkey, net from 8 oz fresh ground turkey breast (5220)
1 onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
1 large egg white
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cups orange juice
8 oz crushed pineapple packed in (unsweetened) juice, drained (9266)
2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
6 9/10 g (1 1/2 tsp firmly packed) light brown sugar
1/2 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp salt (optional)

Recipe Directions for Hawaiian Meatballs

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the ground beef, ground turkey, onion, garlic, oats, egg white, pumpkin pie spice, thyme, salt, and pepper. Mix well.

  2. Roll the meat mixture into about 42 balls, and arrange on a large nonstick spray-coated baking pan. Bake in the upper half of the oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until browned, turning once during browning.

  3. For the sauce, combine the orange juice, pineapple, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, and salt, in a 3-quart flame proof casserole. Heat the ingredients to a simmer.

  4. With a large slotted spoon, transfer the meatballs to the sauce mixture, and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally. Continue simmering for about 30 to 35 minutes, until the sauce has cooked down and thickened so that it coats the meatballs.

  5. Serve at once, or cover and refrigerate. Meatballs will keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
