I liked this recipe but have a few comments on amounts listed. My store does not carry 13.25 ounce cans of pineapple chunks. I used the 20 ounce size but kept all the other sauce ingredients as written. It worked great for me. Using a smaller can of pineapple would result in less sauce since you are depending on the juice from the can so I would opt for the larger can. I would also make sure not to use an Italian frozen meatball. I don't think the flavors would meld with this at all. I used Aidells Chicken Meatballs in the Teriyaki & Pineapple flavor that I get at Costco which come in a 2.25 lb package. These were absolutely the perfect meatball for this recipe if you can find them. I also subbed an orange bell since it is what I had on hand. I think using different colors would make for a nice presentation. Very good! Oh, and make sure to use fresh lemon juice, even though it isn't called out. It's got to be fresh. - 12 Jun 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I use this same recipe(minus the lemon juice for my sweet and sour sauce, but pour it over meatballs that I make that have a small amt of ginger in them to give a unique taste. I have had the same results, in Dec when we are invited to many parties where we are to take dishes, my husband and I make hundreds of meatballs and freeze them. Then we just bake the amt we need, put them in the crock pot w/ the sauce and we're good to go. The crock pot is practically licked clean!!!Thanks for your eaiser version - 23 Apr 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
SOOO good! I love that this recipes gets its "tang" from the pineapple and lemon rather than vinegar. So easy too! Just what I was looking for! It would be good with chicken as well. I also used freeze dried green peppers from my home grocery store so I am ready to make this meal anytime with simple ingredients I always have! - 16 May 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
