Pineapple Hawaiian Meatballs

Looking for something new to make with all that ground beef?....this is the perfect recipe to try. I am always trying to find new things to do with ground beef and something that my family will enjoy. This dish is easy and goes a long way. If you feel ambitious you could make the meatballs, cook them, and then freeze them to serve on another day. Then when you pull them out, mix up the sauce and serve....for an easy-in a hurry-kind of dinner.

Pineapple Hawaiian Meatballs

2 lb. ground beef
1 1/2 c. crushed cornflakes
2 eggs, beaten
2 T. soy sauce
1 t. onion powder
1t. garlic powder
1 t. pepper

Mix all together with your hands, making sure that everything is blended well. Put small amount of oil in a skillet. Make meatballs about the size of a walnut and place in hot oil. Cook until done. Drain grease.

1 can pineapple tidbits
1/2 c. vinegar
1 T. ketchup
2 T. soy sauce
1 1/2 c. brown sugar
3 T. flour
2/3 c. water

Mix brown sugar and water in a sauce pan and heat. Add remaining ingredient and boil for 3 minutes. Pour boiling sauce into skillet with meatballs and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Serve over steamed rice.

Happy Cooking~


  1. Yum, I can't wait to try these.

  2. 1 can pineapple tidbits... juice and all?
    Looks yummy... my husband wants this for dinner but we just had rice last night.

  3. Stephanie,
    For a thicker sauce, drain the pineapple. For a thinner sauce leave the juice. Have fun. Let me know how you like it. Thanks for checking out our blog.

  4. These sound right up my alley. I love that green plate :)

  5. Thank you! I have lots of hamburger I need to use. These look really yummy! :)

  6. I crock potted these by cooking the sauce first, using meatballs from Costco and pouring the sauce over them in the crock pot. It worked out great and was very tasty.
