I was able to try this recipe by following one of the Pre-made weekly menu plans over at eatathome.com I tried several new recipes that week but this one was by far one of our favorites and it was so easy!
Sweet and Sour Meatballs
• about 1 lb. of prepared, frozen meatballs
• 20 oz can pineapple chunks, drained – reserve the juice
• 1 – 1 1/2 cups carrots, sliced
• 1 onion, chopped
• 1 clove garlic
• water to add to the juice to make 1 1/2 cups
• 6 Tbs. vinegar
• 6 Tbs. brown sugar
• 4 Tbs. soy sauce
• 2 Tbs. cornstarch
• cooked rice
Thaw the meatballs in the microwave. In a skillet, saute the onion and garlic in a bit of oil. Add in the carrots and cook for a few minutes.
In a bowl, combine the pineapple juice with enough water to make 1 1/2 cups. Stir in the vinegar, brown sugar, soy sauce and cornstarch. Add to the skillet and stir till thickened. Add the meatballs. Simmer until the meatballs are hot and the
carrots are tender-crisp. Serve over rice.
