Recipe: Waikiki Meatballs

From Carol M. in Framingham, MA, a family favorite:

1 -1/2 lbs ground beef
2/3 cup cracker crumbs
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
1 egg
1-1/2 tsp salt
¼ tsp ground ginger
¼ cup milk
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp corn starch
½ cup brown sugar
13-1/4 oz can of pineapple chunks in syrup
1/3 cup vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/3 cup chopped green pepper

Mix beef, cracker crumbs, onion, beaten egg, salt, ginger and milk. Shape mixture into 1-1/2” balls. Add oil to large skillet and cook meatballs over medium heat, turning until done.

Remove meatballs from skillet and keep them warm. Drain skillet. Mix corn starch and sugar in skillet, and blend in syrup from the pineapple, vinegar and soy sauce until smooth.

Return skillet to medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens. Boil and stir one more minute. Add meatballs, pineapple and green pepper, and heat to desired temperature.

With rice, it serves six.
