Anywho, I made Sweet and Sour Meatballs using turkey meatballs from Trader Joe’s. I’ve made this before but it has been awhile.
1 can pineapple chunks
¼ cup brown sugar
3 tbs soy sauce
¼ tsp red pepper flakes
½ green pepper, chopped
½ orange pepper, chopped
1 cup rice
Bring pineapple chunks, some liquid, brown sugar, and soy sauce to a rolling boil for 2 minutes.
Add red pepper flakes and meatballs before lowering heat to medium low.
Add peppers to meatballs and sauce for the last 2 minutes of cooking.
How easy?! I didn’t have any egg noodles but it turns out Mr. J thought he’d like it better over rice. I also didn’t have any rice but I did have aborio. Risotto with sweet and sour meatballs turned out to be a success!
I had “natural” pineapple chunks and I liked it much better than regular canned pineapple. It’s definitely as close to fresh as you can get.
