    Kaarin's Note:

    This is a crockpot recipe. It has lots of sweet and sour sauce...Yum!!! It looks pretty with meatballs and pineapple chunks. I like to serve it with a crunchy vegetable saute. I almost always use venison in this recipe because the meat is so lean. This is one of dh's favorite foods!

      This was so tasty! I put this on just after lunch today, and it was ready by 6 PM. I used ground chicken for the meatballs and it worked great. I had to keep switching between High and Low heat, and I did stir it every hour or so just to get the sauce mixed in. I have to agree - there is a bit too much cornstarch. When mine was done, the sauce was lovely and thick but the mouth feel of the starch was still there. I didn't add extra liquid, but I did use OJ in place of the pineapple juice. My kids happily ate it on rice too.

      A previous reviewer mentioned the lack of a "tomato"/"red" element, so after some thought, I added a small tin of tomato paste to the ingredients given here. It was superb! Lots of compliments! I did have to add a cup of water in the middle of cooking; the sauce got WAY too thick. And I added a red pepper because it looked so sad without a veggie... :-))) YUM! Will definitely make this again.

      I'm not sure if I would make these again. It seemed to be missing a tomato ingredient (catsup, tomato paste) which is found in many S&S recipes - I didn't think about this until the recipe was in the crockpot and wondered where the red color was. And there was too much cornstarch - I stirred at one point and it was still very thin; 30 minutes later it was paste! I had to add another 3/4 cup liquid.
