The best Sweet and Sour Meatballs ever!

 I recommend if you are in need of a super quick version of this dish, make the sauce and everything the same but instead of your own meatballs use President’s Choice Memories of Kobe Beeffrozen meatballs. They are delish, promise.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

adapted from Lana’s Sweet and Sour Meatballs


1 pound lean ground beef

1 egg

1/2 cup dry bread crumbs

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1/2 tsp. fresh grated ginger

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

1.5 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 teaspoon granulated sugar


1 (20 ounce) can pineapple tidbits, drained (reserve juice)

1/3 cup water

3 tablespoons white vinegar

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 tsp. honey

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

2 or 3 small sweet peppers cut into 1 inch chunks

1 tsp chilli pepper flakes


Mix all ingredients for meatballs, then form into balls. Brown meatballs in butter and oil until crispy.

To make the sauce, mix enough water with the reserved pineapple juice to make 1 cup. In a large pot over medium heat, combine the juice mixture, vinegar, soy sauce, honey, chili peppers, ginger  and brown sugar. Mix together 1/3 cup water and cornstarch- stir until smooth. Add to sauce mix, and stir until thick and boiling. Add pineapple and sweet peppers.
Mix sauce with meatballs and cook, covered, in oven for 30 min. Serve over rice, noodles, or cous cous.
