How to make it
- Combine meatball ingredients and shape meat into large meatballs (if serving as main course) or cocktail size meatballs (if serving as an appetizer).
- Combine batter ingredients, and whisk together to make a smooth batter.
- Heat peanut oil in large, deep skillet to about 350 degrees.
- Dip meatballs in batter and fry in hot oil until browned on all sides.
- Remove meatballs from skillet; set aside.
- Remove all but about 1 tablespoon oil from pan, and add 1 cup broth, green pepper, onion and water chestnuts; cover and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.
- NOTE: I've also stir-fried the veggies in the 1 tablespoon oil for a minute or two so they can grab the full flavor from the bottom of the pan, but it's not necessary if you prefer not to fry the veggies - the original recipe just cooks them in the stock.
- Blend in cornstarch to remaining 1 cup broth; stir into skillet mixture, then add soy sauce, vinegar, juice and sugar.
- Cook, stirring constantly, until sauce boils and thickens.
- Return meatballs to skillet; add pineapple chunks, and heat mixture thoroughly.
- For a main course, serve meatballs and sauce over hot rice, or place them in a crockpot to keep warm and serve as an appetizer.
