Pineapple Meatballs Recipe


  • Author: Bobby

Ingredients

Scale
  • Meatballs-
  • 2 lbs ground beef (lean)
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
    Sauce-
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 ¾ cups pineapple juice (reserved from pineapple tidbits)
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 1 ½ tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (14 oz) can pineapple tidbits

Instructions

  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 saucepan. Then add 1 ¾ 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).
  4. In a casserole dish pour the 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
