Meatballs

  7. Remove from the oven and set aside.

Sweet and Sour Sauce

  1. In a large skillet, sauté peppers in oil until softened.
  2. Add garlic and ginger and cook 1 minute.
  3. Stir in the pineapple chunks with juice.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together sugar, vinegar, ketchup, corn starch and soy sauce. Add to the pan with the peppers and pineapple.
  5. Add the meatballs, and simmer for 5-10 minutes until the sauce thickens and meatballs are warmed through.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
