I love these, I too have made these since I were little. Great flavor and so light tasting, I served them over rice.
I had this cookbook and made this recipe many, many times. It's so very good . Thx for sharing as I have since lost this cookbook
I love this recipe. I've made it with the meatballs and it turned out beautifully, but we just aren't a big meatball family. I usually use chunked chicken or pork dredged in flour and then sauteed in a wok pan. After the meat is cooked through I add the peppers and pineapple and give them a couple minutes. All the ingredients for the sauce are mixed using a salad dressing mixer bottle and then poured into the pan with the meat, pineapple, and peppers. Cook until bubbly and thickened, and serve over rice.
