READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Nimz1466

We serve these every new years when we have a neighborhood gathering. They always go over well. I could only guess at the prep time and serving sizes, but I am close.

Terrific recipe! Tasty and the leftovers were even better! After reading the reviews, I substituted pineapple juice for 1/2 of the vinegar. When checking the meatballs though, I added the vinegar back to the mix. I also added a drained can of bamboo shoots because I had the extra liquid. We were very happy with the dish and it's a recipe I'll use again & again. The recipe makes tons and the meatballs are bathed in a lovely light colored sauce. It is a wee tart, but more than sweet enough to be pleasing. I served with Asian Inspired Rice #467378. Thank you for sharing the recipe ! :-)
