  • Currently 4/5
2 lbs ground beef
2 eggs
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger, divided
2 tsps seasoned salt, divided
1/2 tsp pepper
2 tsps Worcestershire sauce
2 tsps sugar
2 cans pineapple chunks, drained with juice reserved
2/3 cup water
2 Tbsp distilled white vinegar
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 cup brown sugar
4 Tbsp cornstarch
1 large carrot, diced
1 large bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly grease a large, shallow baking sheet. In a large bowl, thoroughly mix the ground beef, eggs, bread crumbs and onion. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1 teaspoon seasoning salt, ground black pepper, Worcestershire sauce and granulated white sugar. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place meatballs in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes; set aside.
2. To make the sauce, add enough water to the reserved pineapple juice to make 2 cups. In a large pot over medium heat, combine the juice mixture, 2/3 cup water, vinegar, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Stir in cornstarch, remaining 1 teaspoon ginger and remaining 1 teaspoon seasoning salt. Stir until smooth. Cover and cook until thickened. Stir pineapple chunks, carrot and green pepper into the sauce. Add meatballs and gently stir to coat them with the sauce. Simmer, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked. Serve over white rice. Serves: 4 to 6.
