Very good, although I had to make some changes due to lack of the right ingredients. I should have planned better! I had no chicken broth so I used white wine instead, and omitted the whiskey as we didn't have any. Also, I baked the meatballs instead of frying them. Great flavor, great recupie!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine first six ingredients. Gently shape into balls about 1 inch in diameter (If you have a melon baller, it helps standardize the size of balls.) In 10-inch frying pan heat oil and brown meat balls.
  2. Remove from pan and drain on paper towels. Drain pan, retaining about 1 tablespoon oil. Add broth and drained pineapple. Simmer for 5 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, make the Scottish Sauce.
  4. Combine all ingredients except green pepper and mix until smooth. Stir into skillet with pineapple mixture and cook until sauce has thickened. Add meatballs and green pepper. Cook gently about 10 minutes more.
  5. Serve with rice.
