Sweet-&-Sour Meatballs

Your rating: None Average: 3.6 (20 votes)

These bite-size sweet-and-sour meatballs, drizzled with a pineapple- and soy-based sauce, make a great appetizer. Shredded carrot and finely diced pineapple keep the meatballs moist, while fresh ginger and Chinese five-spice powder amp up the flavor.

Listed as gluten-free, but....

This recipe is listed as gluten-free. However, be sure to use gluten-free soy sauce as regular soy sauce is not gluten-free.

Tasty meatballs, sauce too tangy/sweet

The sauce was too tangy/sweet for me. Maybe it was too much rice vinegar. I felt that the sauce lacked a deep, rounded flavor. Was very disappointed with the sauce unfortunately.

meatballs were flavorful and moist
good flavor, but fell apart

my meatballs fell apart when baking. flavors were good, but i think i should have added some panko or put in freezer for a ended up being a big mess.

Simply fabulous

This was a great recipe. The meatballs had a lot of flavor without the sauce but with it, fabulous. I served the meatballs in the sauce with rice for dinner. Even my fussy daughter actually liked them (and she doesn't like turkey or pork). A keeper

Moist and very tasty, easy appetizer or even dinner
