Sweet & Sour Meatballs

Thanks, Mindi, for this yummy recipe! My boys just devoured this up tonight! This was my first attempt with meatballs and they weren't as hard as I was anticipating. I think they would work well in almost any recipe calling for meat balls. I might try them next time I make spaghetti.Sweet & Sour Meatballs

Make meatballs by combining:
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/4 c. milk
  • 6 Ritz crackers, crushed (I used bread crumbs instead, about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Minced onion to taste
Fry in a skillet and set aside.

For the sauce you'll need:
  • 3 cubes beef bouillon dissolved in 1 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 1/4 c. vinegar
  • 1 can pineapple tidbits (I used crushed)
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 2 T. soy sauce
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 2 T. corn starch
  • 1/4 c. cold water
In a saucepan, combine beef bouillon, undrained pineapple, vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, and salt. Blend well and simmer about 15 minutes.

Combine cornstarch with the cold water and stir into boiling mixture stirring constantly. Simmer and stir until thickened and clear. Add meatballs and simmer an additional 10 to 15 minutes.

Serve over cooked fluffy rice.

Serves 6 to 8.
