Waikiki Meatballs

I got this recipe from a great friend. I was so happy that it was simple, fast, and easy... Just what I need on a busy school night. It is similar to my sweet and sour meatballs recipe, but different enough to post on it's own. We loved it!

Waikiki Meatballs

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

Mix everything thoroughly and make into meatballs. Fry until brown. Remove meatballs from pan and set aside in a serving dish. In the same frying pan make the sweet and sour sauce.

Sweet and Sour Sauce

2 tbsp cornstarch
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
13 1/2 oz can of Pineapple tidbits (reserve juice)
The juice from your pineapple tidbits
1/2 of a green bell pepper, diced
1/2 of a red bell pepper, diced

In a little bowl, blend 2 Tbsp cornstarch with 1/3 c brown sugar. In the frying pan mix 1/3 c vinegar and 1 Tbsp soy sauce and the juice from a 13 1/2 oz. can of pineapple tidbits. Add the cornstarch and brown sugar mixture. Heat until thickened. Then add pineapple tidbits, green or red bell peppers and the meatballs. Serve over rice.
