Waikiki Meatballs

I made this for dinner quite often when my kids were growing up. It seems that with a large family, it's hard to find something that everybody likes. This was one that seamed to satisfy everyone. Before I got married, Emma gave me a recipe file box filled with some of her favorite recipes. This was one that she included from Mary.

Waikiki Meatballs

1½ lbs. ground beef
⅔ c. cracker crumbs
⅓ c. minced onion
1 egg
¼ t. ginger
¼ c. milk
1½ t. salt
2 T. cornstarch
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 can pineapple tidbits (drain, reserve juice)
1/3 c. vinegar
1 T. soy sauce
1/3 c. chopped green pepper
1/3 c. sliced onion

Mix meat, crumbs, chopped onion, egg, salt ginger and milk. Shape mixture by rounded tablespoons into meatballs. Spray frying pan with PAM. Brown and cook meatballs. Remove and keep warm. Pour excess fat from pan.

Mix cornstarch and sugar. Stir in reserved pineapple juice, vinegar and soy sauce until smooth. Pour into skillet. Cook over medium heat stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir one minute Add meatballs, pineapple tidbits and green peppers and slice onions. Heat through. Serve over rice.
