Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Several years ago my husband and I went on a diet that was promoted by Richard Simmons.  Seriously.  I am ashamed to admit it.

The one highlight to this little diet was this awesome recipe for Sweet and Sour meatballs.  These have become my go-to when we invite someone new to come for dinner.  Everyone loves them and always asks for the recipe!

Here is what you need:

2 pounds ground hamburger meat.  (Go for 80/20 it holds together better!)

1 package onion soup mix

1 cup bread crumbs

2 eggs

2 cups barbecue sauce

16 ounces crushed pineapple

1/2 cup brown sugar

20130729-195330.jpgPut a few tablespoons of water in the bottom of a pan and turn heat to medium-low.  Roll your meatballs and place in the water.  Cook for about 3-5 minutes.

20130729-195337.jpgTurn your meatballs and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes.  Take the meatballs out and place into a 9X13 pan.  Repeat until all the meat is gone.
