Luau Meatballs

 This recipe is so delicious!Above is how it looks with the cherries and below is how it looks without them. Big difference huh? Either way, I love this dish - it's so tasty!

This dish tastes really good over a bed of white rice, in the second picture I used Ramen noodles and it was really good as well.

Luau Meatballs
  • 1 package of frozen meatballs (2 - inch meatballs)
  • 1 large can pineapple juice
  • 2 (20 oz) cans pineapple chunks or tidbits
  • 1 jar of maraschino cherries
  • 2-3 green bell peppers chopped
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup of red wine or cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Bring all ingredients to a boil. At this point I like to take a Tbsp of cornstarch and mix it with 1/4 cup of pineapple juice or water and add it to the boiling mixture. Then reduce heat to a simmer. This will thicken the sauce and continue to cook your meatballs. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Serve over noodles or rice. This is very filling and feeds a lot of people.
