Sweet and Sour Meatballs

I've been in the hunt for some new recipes. I tend to find ones that I like and make them A LOT! I was getting sick of the same old chicken and tuna recipes.

I found this one and I think it will be amazing with some steamed broccoli and brown rice!

(makes 74 meatballs)


  • 2 lbs of lean ground turkey (preferably turkey breast)
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 20 oz can crushed pineapple in 100% juice, drained
  • 1 cup green onions
  • 2 Tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp ground ginger


  • 1 1/2 cups reduced-sodium, low-fat chicken broth
  • 2/3 cup chili sauce
  • 6 Tbsp rice vinegar (1/4 cup + 2 Tbsp)
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine meatball ingredients in a medium bowl and mix well.
  3. Line a baking sheet with foil. 
  4. Shape meatballs and place on the cookie sheet. Make sure they are spaced far enough apart that they do not touch.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes or until completely cooked. 
  6. Transfer the meatballs to a serving dish and cover to keep warm.
  7. While the meatballs are cooking, combine the sauce ingredients in a small saucepan.
  8. Stir until the cornstarch is completely dissolved.
  9. Place saucepan over medium heat and stir occasionally until the mixture is boiling.
  10. Reduce heat to low and stir for another minute or until the sauce thickens.
  11. Pour hot sauce over the meatballs and gently toss to coat meatballs.
  12. Serve with toothpicks as an appetizer OR over a serving of brown rice for dinner!
  13. Enjoy!
