Sweet and Sour Meatballs

From: Feeding the Flock p. 90-Louisa Joy
Makes: 4-6 servings. (I half the recipe)

1 lb hamburger (I would use ground turkey)
1 egg
1 T. cornstarch
1 tsp. salt
2 T. chopped onion
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 T. oil

Mix all ingredients except oil together and form into balls. Brown in oil in a hot frying pan.

1 c. pineapple juice (whatever is left from a can of pineapple chunks)
Mix together:
2 T. cornstarch
1 T. soy sauce
3 T. vinegar
6 T. water
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 can pineapple chunks
1 green pepper, cut into strips

Add pineapple juice to the meatballs. Then mix together the cornstarch, soy sauce, vinegar, water, and brown sugar and add to the pineapple juice. Cook until it thickens. Add pineapple juice and green pepper. Heat thoroughly. Serve over hot rice.

*We like to cook the pineapple and peppers till they are soft. We also now just use frozen meatballs, as it is faster and easier. I don't really like meatballs or cooked pineapple or green peppers all that much, but I love this meal. Plus, it's quick.
