Ingredients

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.
