This is a family favourite; my teenage son eats at least 2 servings himself. Cooking time includes the browning of the meatballs, although you can brown them in the oven on a cookie sheet and make the sauce at the same time, saving yourself a little time.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
  2. First, make the meatballs: combine all meatball ingredients (there's 7, beef to garlic powder) in a bowl and mix well; shape into 1-inch balls.
  3. Brown them in a nonstick frying pan (I do it in 3 batches) until browned all over; drain on paper towel then place in a large ungreased casserole dish.
  4. To make sauce, combine brown sugar and cornstarch in a large saucepan, then whisk in the 1-3/4 cup pineapple juice/water combination until mixture is smooth.
  5. Add vinegar, soy sauce and worcestershire sauce; stir.
  6. Simmer, uncovered, on medium-low heat for about 8 minutes, or until thickened.
  7. Pour sauce over meatballs and add pineapple tidbits; stir gently to combine until meatballs are coated with sauce.
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
  9. If you want a lot, this recipe doubles well.
