Looked for something quick to fix as I was distracted with the "chatroom grand opening" and this really fit the bill. It was easy, fast and tasty. Cooked meatballs on cookie sheet as suggested and it worked out great. Made exactly as written except I added 1/4 tsp. red chili flakes to the sauce. Served with jasmine rice and a simple spinach salad. Next time I think I will cut back on the sugar a little and add diced and sauteed green and red bell peppers. Great addition to my stash of quick and easy recipes. Thanks Lennie!

A great recipe, my family loved it! Next time I will add a little more pineapple juice and I would cook it for about 35-40 minutes.

I found these very easy to make, and everyone loved them. I made smaller meatballs to take to a party. They didn't last long. If serving as a main course, I would serve with rice. Definitely a nice change.

Very good - made with frozen meatballs and served w/ jasmine rice. Easy, quick and good. I would say frozen meatballs cut prep time down to 10 minutes.

I followed the recipe, doubling everything, through the browning/draining step. I then put the meatballs into a crockpot, added the pineapple (I used chunks, instead of bits), and poured the sauce over. I doubled the sauce too. I turned it to high for about 4 hours, stirring a few times, and it was perfectly done. I brought it in the crockpot to a New Year's Eve party, and we plugged it in and kept it on low, so people could eat it over several hours. Hosts made a big pot of rice. It was really good; not too sweet. This is a great no-fuss dish to make for a party.

I just don't think I have the time or space to tell you how much I enjoyed this recipe. I cut it in half, with no problem. I was also very pressed for time and a little worried that DH wouldn't like the sauce, so I cheated a little. I made the meat up into hamburger patties, cooked them and set them aside. I then cooked the sauce according to your directions except that I added the pineapple and simmered for an additional 10 minutes. I then spooned the sauce over the hamburger patties, served with mashed potatoes. It was wonderful. The balance of the sauce is in the fridge right now. I am going to use it on some ham I have in the freezer. I didn't change a thing about the recipe, I just changed up the cooking process a little. Thanks for the great recipe.

This recipe was absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe exactly as written and served with mashed potatoes and french bread. My children love pineapple, so this recipe really went over well with them. Thanks for a great recipe!

excellent, excellent, excellent! These were so delicious that no one was talking while eating! I thought that it might be too sweet but still i didn't adjust the recipe, and it wasn't too sweet at all. Just right :) Thanks Lennie!
