Sweet & Sour Hawaiian Meatballs

Sweet & Sour Hawaiian Meatballs created by arieschica21

I really enjoy the sweet and sour flavor on a variety of foods (pineapple and green pepper just go together well esp. with vinegar and sugar). I have already submitted my sweet and sour pork chops, so here it is for the beef.

    Nice! My husband especially liked it, and even commented on how colorful it was! :) I used 20 oz can of pineapple and just used 1/2 cup juice and 1/2 cup water, but I think it would have been fine to use the full amount of juice from the can. I might like the green pepper cooked through a bit more and might saute it up next time and see how that is. I used the (10 oz jar) cherries and frozen meatballs like previous reviewers did. I might try pineapple tidbits next time. And I know this sounds crazy, but I might chop up some spam and throw it in next time for a bit of saltiness to counteract the sweet (Did you know Spam is very popular in Hawaii?). Thanks for the fun new recipe!

    Pretty easy and delicious! Used frozen meatballs and used cherries instead of the pimentos. Gave it a sweetness that i loved! it was a big hit at my Luau Party.
