Recipe Ingredients for Pineapple Meatballs

1 lb lean ground beef
1 large eggs
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 3/4 cups pineapple juice (reserved from pineapple tidbits)
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
14 oz pineapple tidbits

Recipe Directions for Pineapple Meatballs

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Make the meatballs by combining all meatball ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well and shape into about 1? meatballs.

  2. Brown Meatballs in a non-stick frying pan and drain on paper towels (or if you want to save time brown in the oven on a cookie sheet while you?re making the sauce).

  3. Make the sauce by combining cornstarch and brown sugar in a sauce pan. Then add 1 cup pineapple juice and blend until the mixture is smooth. Add vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and stir. Simmer uncovered on medium low until thickened (about 8 minutes - mine only took about 4 minutes to thicken).

  4. In a casserole dish pour sauce over meatballs and add pineapple tidbits. Lightly mix meatballs until they are coated with the sauce. Bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until fully cooked.
