Sweet N' Sour Meatball and Bell Pepper Skillet

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

In place of the apricot jam you may use 1/3 cup marmalade with 1 tablespoon brown sugar, use you own favorite meatball recipe or use frozen store-bought meatballs --- this may easily be doubled, prep time does not include preparing and baking meatballs, serve with hot cooked rice

We really enjoyed this - was a nice change from our regular meatball and rice dish. Used the Orange Marmalade and Brown Sugar substitution and will make it the same way the next time.
