Sweet'n'Sour Meatballs Over Rice


Flavorful, though not necessarily pretty dish :)

  • 24-30 meatballs (med sized)
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar or turbinado style
  • 1 teaspoon arrowroot powder
  • 1/8 cup HOT water
  • Sauce:

  • 1 small can crushed pineapple
  • 1 medium green pepper
  • 1/4 cup Bragg's all purpose Seasoning (or other appropriate wheat free soy sauce)
  • 1 small onion (whichever color you prefer)
  • 1 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • salt & cayenne to taste
  • generous sprinkling of parsley (It's a bennie- load up! :))
How to make it:
  1. Brown meatballs in frying pan.
  2. Once browned, pour most of sauce over meat in pan (reserve about a 1/4 cup).
  3. Simmer, allowing to reduce. (The longer you let it simmer, the more flavorful).
  4. Meanwhile, cook rice according to package instructions, but add the 1/4 cup of reserved sauce.
  5. Just before rice is finished cooking, dissolve arrowroot & sugar in water; add to meat mixture to thicken, and simmer for 3 minutes (Don't let the sugar burn!).
  6. Once thickened, serve over cooked rice.
  7. Sauce:

  8. Easy method: throw ingredients in blender and mix until veggies chopped to desired size.
  9. (best to remove stalk & seeds of pepper)
  10. Hard way: cut green pepper small, mince onion. Mix with remaining ingredients.
  11. **Note** I'm one of these people who eyeballs ingredients- you don't have to follow the recipe exactly. Adjust amount of meat or rice depending on preference.
