Recipe Description

2 lbs ground beef
1-2 cups bread crumbs 
1 eggs
salt & pepper for taste

1 cup pineapple juice
½ cup brown sugar
⅓ cup white vinegar
2 TBSP soy sauce or teriyaki sauce
2 TBSP corn starch

Recipe Directions

In large bowl, mix all the ingredients together till mixed well. Add extra bread crumbs if mixture is to wet & sticky.

Make desired sized meatballs.

In frying pan, fully cook meatballs or slightly brown in frying pan & finish cooking in the oven.

In small bowl, add corn starch to pineapple juice. To avoid clumps, keep stirring as you add the corn starch to the juice.
Mix corn starch mixture & all other ingredients together in sauce pan.

Over medium-high heat, stir constantly till it starts to bubble & the color changes from a cloudy milky brown color liquid to a light-medium caramel color thick glaze.

Remove from heat & as sauce cools it will thicken a little more.

Serve over rice or noodles with pineapples on the side.

Recipe is extremely easy to double.

Could use any meatball recipe if you have a favorite recipe or in a quick pinch frozen meatballs work great.

If you are only using the juice from the canned pineapple but do not get quite a cup of juice, add enough water to reach a full cup.

If doubling the sauce recipe but do not want a super sweet sauce, use 1 cup of juice & 1 cup water.

Add extra teaspoon of vinegar for extra tartness to sauce.
