Waikiki Meatballs

this was yummy. i made rice-a-roni fried rice to go with it and it was a good combo. check out the website i got this from; it has some other good recipes i want to try.

1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
2/3 cup cracker crumbs
2/3 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup milk
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1 egg
2 tsp. ginger

mix together and roll into meatballs. brown and cook over medium heat in large skillet.

2 tbsp. cornstarch
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup vinegar
3 tbsp. soy sauce
1 can pineapple tidbits
2/3 cup chopped green pepper

mix cornstarch and brown sugar. drain pineapple juice into mixture with the vinegar and soy sauce. add green pepper and pineapple to meatballs. once cooked through add the sauce mixture and cook until thickened. serve over rice.

additions: add red or orange peppers to give it more color. you can also double the sauce ingredients to get more sauce for the rice.

keeps well in a crockpot.
