Sweet & Sour Meatballs

Another successful recipe from mom! It's so good I could eat it weekly WITH leftovers! By far my new favorite :)

1 cup pineapple juice
3 Tbs. cornstarch
3 Tbs. vinegar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 T. soy sauce
1/3 cup water

Bring the above ingredients to a boil, stirring constantly. Once sauce thickens, add 1 green (or red) bell pepper thinly sliced and 1 large can pineapple tidbits, drained.(You can use this juice as part of your pineapple juice). Pour sauce over meatballs and stir until well combined. At this point, the meatballs & sauce can be transferred into a crock-pot and left on low for 2 - 4 hours. This helps to incorporate the flavors and soften the green pepper. Serve over rice.

*This sauce is enough for 12 meatballs. I usually double the sauce recipe and add 24 meatballs. I don't necessarily increase the amount of pineapple or peppers in it though. One whole large pepper thinly sliced and one large can pineapple tidbits seems to be plenty. I also like to add sliced onion sometimes with the pepper.
