Superbowl Sweet and Sour Meatballs

I made this recipe for a superbowl potluck and it was a huge hit!! It's also a great weekday meal, made easy with freezer meatballs (made in a big batch on a weekend!!)

Sweet and Sour Sauce for Meatballs (adapted from Lana's)

1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks, drained with juice reserved
1/3 cup water
3 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 large carrot, diced
1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
Approximately 30 meatballs, defrosted!

1. Mix enough water with the reserved pineapple juice to make 1 cup. In a large pot over medium heat, combine the juice mixture, 1/3 cup water, vinegar, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Stir in cornstarch, and ginger and until smooth. Cover and cook until thickened.
2. Stir pineapple chunks, carrot, green pepper and meatballs into the sauce. Gently stir to coat the meatballs with the sauce. Simmer, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked

Serve over rice!
