Serves 8-10 | Prep Time | Cook Time 30


2 lbs lean ground beef
2 large eggs
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp garlic powder

1 cup packed brown sugar
3 tbsp cornstarch
1 3/4 cups pineapple juice (reserved), plus water if necessary (to measure)
1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1 1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 (14 oz) can pineapple tidbits, juice drained & reserved as above

Preheat oven to 350F.

Combine beef, eggs, breadcrumbs, salt, black pepper, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder in a bowl & mix well, shape into 1-inch balls.

Brown meatballs in nonstick frying pan, drain on paper towel & place into large ungreased casserole dish.

To make sauce, combine brown sugar & cornstarch in large saucepan, whisking in pineapple juice/water combination until mixture is smooth.

Add vinegar, soy sauce & worcestershire, stir.

Simmer, uncovered, on medium-low heat for about 8 minutes or until thickened.

Pour sauce over meatballs & add pineapple tidbits, stir gently to combine until meatballs are covered. Bake for 30 mins.

This is awesome with rice for a meal, or on their own as an appetizer.

To shake things up a bit try adding some chopped green & red pepper or even onion.
