Sweet and Sour Meatballs for a crowd
Tried and True by my DSis
Buy a package of frozen meatballs and cook them according to the directions on the box. Or make your own favorite recipe. I'm too lazy! LOL! Set them aside while you make the sauce.
Sweet and Sour Sauce
2 sweet red bell peppers, chopped
2 green bell peppers, chopped
2 cups diced celery
1 19-oz can crushed pineapple, drained and reserve juice
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 tsp garlic, minced to a paste with the salt below
1 tsp salt
1/2 dry mustard
4 tbs corn starch
1 cup vinegar
2 cups water
3/4 cups catsup
3 tbs soya sauce
1/2 tsp ground ginger or 1 tbs freshly grated ginger
Saute peppers and celery in a little oil for 5 minutes.
Set aside with the pineapple, to be added later.
Combine the remaining ingredients in a large saucepan.
Stir over medium heat until sauce is thickened and clear.
Add meatballs, peppers, celery and pineapple.
Heat thoroughly. Stir in the reserved pineapple juice, in small amounts, if mixture gets too thick.
Serve over plain boiled rice. Makes 24 servings.
