Pineapple Sweet and Sour Meatballs

I am not quite sure how this recipe has not made it onto the blog yet. We love these meatballs. I guess I just never took a picture of the finished product before. I got this recipe years ago from a recipe swap. This meal comes together very quickly, especially if you use frozen meatballs like I always do. IKEA's frozen meatballs are my favorite (that's what I used this time), but if you don't have an IKEA near you, Armor meatballs are also good.

Pineapple Sweet and Sour Meatballs

meatballs, precooked (I use about 1 1/2 lbs for my family)

1 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup white vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1, 15 oz can pineapple tidbits (drain off about 1/2 the juices)
1 1/2 cups water

Combine brown sugar and cornstarch in a large saucepan. Whisk in vinegar, soy sauce, and water. Stir over medium heat until it comes to a low boil. Add can of pineapple with some of the juices and stir until sauced is thickened and bubbly. Add cooked meatballs, tossing to coat. Heat through. Serve over rice.
