Pineapple Meatballs

I am going to start off by saying that I havent had many meatballs in my life but these are the yummiest I have had. There is so much flavor and they are so good.


Pineapple Meatballs
Recipe Source: melskitchencafe.com

Meatballs:
2 lbs Ground Beef
2 Large Eggs
1/2 cup Italian Beadcrumbs
1 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder

Sauce:
1 1/4 cups Brown Sugar
3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
1 3/4 cups Pineapple Juice (reserved from pineapple tidbits, if there isn't enough use water to make up the difference)
1/4 cup White Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
2 teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
1-14oz can Pineapple Tidbits

1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. For the meatballs, combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well, I used my hands, and shape into 1 inch balls.

2. Brown the meatballs in a non-stick frying pan. Drain on paper towels.

3. For the sauce, combine cornstarch and brown sugar in a sauce pan. Then add the pineapple juice and mix until the mixture is smooth. Add vinegar, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and stir. Simmer uncovered on medium-low until thick. Approx. 5 minutes.

4. In a 9x13 dish place in the meatballs and pour sauce over. Add pineapple tidbits. Gently mix the meatballs until they are coated with the sauce. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until cooked.
