Sweet and Sour Meatballs

4 lbs. ground beef
4 Tbsp. cornstarch
8 Tbsp. chopped onion
4 eggs, lightly beaten
4 tsp. salt
pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients and form into the size of ping-pong balls (50). Brown in a small amount of oil. Drain.

For sauce:
3 Tbsp. butter
6 Tbsp cornstarch
6-8 Tbsp. vinegar
1 ½ cup sugar
3 cups pineapple juice
3 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 cup water

Heat together butter, juice, sugar, vinegar, and soy sauce. Mix water and cornstarch and add to hot juice and cook until thickened. Add meatballs, pineapple chunks, and ½ green pepper cut in bite size pieces. Heat, but not too long. Green pepper should be crunchy. Serve over rice. This is great to freeze or easy to cut in half. I sometimes use brown sugar and cider vinegar for a more zippy flavor.
