Meatballs

1 1/2
lb ground pork
1
large onion, finely chopped (1 cup)
1/4
cup Progresso™ plain bread crumbs
1
egg
2
tablespoons soy sauce
1
teaspoon grated gingerroot
1
clove garlic, finely chopped

Sauce

1 3/4
cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1/4
cup rice vinegar
2
tablespoons soy sauce
1
teaspoon grated gingerroot
1
clove garlic, finely chopped
2
tablespoons cornstarch
1/4
cup cold water
1
tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2
cups chopped green bell pepper
3/4

2
cups fresh or canned pineapple chunks

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray or line with cooking parchment paper.
  • 2 In large bowl, mix all meatball ingredients. Shape mixture by 2 tablespoonfuls into balls. Place on cookie sheet.
  • 3 Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown on outside and no longer pink in center.
  • 4 Meanwhile, in large saucepan, stir together broth, brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, 1 teaspoon gingerroot and 1 garlic clove. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. In small bowl, mix cornstarch and water until smooth. Add cornstarch mixture to simmering sauce; stir well.
  • 5 In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook bell peppers in oil 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender. Reduce heat to low. Add pineapple; cook 3 to 4 minutes longer or until pineapple is starting to cook around the edges.
  • 6 Add bell pepper, pineapple and meatballs to sauce in saucepan. Simmer 15 to 20 minutes until meatballs are coated with sauce and mixture is thoroughly heated.
  • 7 Serve meatballs, sauce and vegetables over cooked rice, or serve with toothpicks.

Expert Tips

This recipe serves 4 to 6 for a main dish, but more if serving as an appetizer.

Meatballs and sauce can be heated in a slow cooker on Low heat setting about 1 hour. For a party, it’s handy to keep the meatballs warm in the slow cooker.

Ground turkey may be substituted for the ground pork.
