    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.

    I grew up on these meatballs and absolutely love them. They always make me think of my mother when I eat them!

    I thought these tasted good and were really tender, they just didn't have enough taste I guess. Kind of bland. I'm glad I tried it, but it's not something I'd make again.

    I love this recipe, it's my middle daughter's favorite as well. I cannot however make meatballs for anything, so instead I buy the frozen homestyle ones they sell in the freezer section at my local grocery store.
