It was pretty tasty, I would make them again. I baked the meatballs rather than fried them, and they turned out well. I would add a little more ginger and a touch of salt to them in the future. Would definitely bring these to a party. Easy.

I made this for a work potluck and everyone raved about it! I doubled the recipe but didn't double the pineapple or bell peppers, and it turned out great. I made the meatballs the day before and froze them overnight. Made the sauce, but didn't add the produce until the next day, when I put everything in a crockpot on low for about 2 hours. I left out the carrots (they didn't "go" to me) and didn't add the water chestnuts until I added the veggies. I also would, next time, MINCE the onion as fine as you can since dicing it left chunks too large for the meatballs. I also used turkey in place of the pork. But I had 5 requests for a copy of the recipe, so THANK YOU for providing it!

This was great! Very easy to make and very tasty! I love the fact that the meatballs don't need any eggs since my son is allergic to eggs! Thanks for sharing!

I made this for a church potluck today. It was a hit. I used beef and pork and had to sub flour for the starch. I had lots of compliments. Thank you for sharing.

This is a very tasty dish and would be superb over rice. I originally made this hoping for an "appetizer" and then wondered what I would do with the veggies. However, I will serve the meatballs and pineapple in the sauce as an appetizer and the rest is reserved for supper one evening. I have been doing my meatballs in the oven for quite sometime and find them much healthier. I'm thinking this sauce would be great with chicken, pork, etc. Endless possibilities here.

I'm not a sweet and sour addict but it was quite tasty. Used frozen pre-cooked turkey meatballs. Just boiled them in the pineapple juice and water to heat them.

I'm sorry that I didn't like this as well as other reviewers. I thought the meatballs had a slightly strange texture. Normally I use an egg and breadcrumb or other filler in my meatballs and I much prefer that to the cornstarch. The sauce was very nice. I used pineapple juice instead of water and used only 1/2 the sugar. Another time I think I would cut the sugar down even more, although I am sure this would be a real kid-pleaser as written. The veggies and pineapple with the meatballs were very nice. I think I might make this again with my traditional meatball recipe and a less sweetened sauce.
