I am the LAST little piggy who should be posting polynesian recipes, but we found this recipe in the friend magazine a while back. The meatball recipe came from my sister-in-law. We like these meatballs better than the friend recipe, but the sauce has been a huge hit at our house, so I thought I would share:
-2 lbs ground beef
-1 can sweetened condensed milk
-1 pkg. lipton onion soup mix
-mix all ingredients together and form into small balls. Put on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes
-1 20 oz can crushed pineapple
-2 Tbs. cornstarch
-1/2 c. cider vinegar
-2 Tbs. soy sauce
-2 Tbs. lemon juice
-1/2 c. brown sugar
-drain pineapple and set aside pineapple. Add juice to the rest of the ingredients and bring to a boil. Cook until thick. Add pineapple and meatballs. Serve over rice.
you can make this whole thing and serve it right away, OR you can put it in the crockpot. I like it best in the crockpot and let it cook for another 2-3 hours on low.
Also, a little tip: I mix the ingredients for the meatballs with a spoon and use a small cookie scoop (like the pampered chef one) to make the meatballs. That way they are the perfect size, it's fast, and I don't even have to get my hands dirty :) it makes up for dirtying a crock pot when I don't have to!
