Sweet and Sour Meatballs

This recipe comes from the cookbook my mom gave me for my wedding shower. I first made this in July of 1987 and it became one of Don's favorites.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs
Betty Crocker cookbook

Meat Balls

1 lb hamburger
1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons finely chopped onions
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1 egg

Sweet and Sour Sauce

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks or tidbits
1/3 cup vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Mix meatball ingredients well and shape into balls. Bake in 400 degree Fahrenheit oven until light brown, 20-25 minutes. Drain fat from meat balls.
Mix brown sugar and cornstarch in pan. Stir in pineapple (with syrup), vinegar and soy sauce.
Heat to boiling, stirring constantly, reduce and heat to simmer. Add meat balls. Cover, simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Serve over rice.

  1. Hi, Beth! Found you by way of Texas Blogging Gals. Oh, how I love a good recipe! I'm on a self-imposed diet for the time being, but will love trying some of these out after a few pounds remove themselves from this body! Have a great day!
