Simple Feingold Short-cut Cooking for Busy Families
If you love Sweet & Sour dishes but don’t want to have to deal with the down side of most recipes and carry-out dishes, this is for you. Most sweet & sour recipes have:
Enormous amounts to sugar
Salicylate (Stage Two) ingredients
Red dye – used in some restaurant dishes
What’s more, they usually call for multiple ingredients and a lot of cooking. Well, Sweet & Sour lovers, here’s a recipe with none of those down sides. Our version uses an ingredient that is both sweet and sour and doesn’t need any added sugar. It’s unsweetened pineapple juice!
Sweet & Sour Meatballs
To make the meatballs
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine:
2 pounds of Ground Meat (pork, beef, turkey, chicken)
1 cup Quick Oats
2/3 cups of Water
2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
Combine ingredients in a large bowl and smush them together with your hands. (Wearing disposable latex gloves can make it all much easier!)
Use a scoop (about 1 ½ inches wide) to make meatballs. Gently roll them in your hands to make them round and put them on a piece of waxed paper.
Place the meatballs on an oiled baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes.
After the meatballs are done, make the sauce.
Sweet & Sour Sauce
Add 4 level Tablespoons Cornstarch to 16 ounces of Unsweetened Pineapple Juice. You can add 1 Tablespoon of Soy Sauce if you like.
Mix to combine, and heat in a saucepan, stirring, until thickened.
Add the meatballs and serve over rice.
* The sauce can also be used over prepared breaded chicken or fish nuggets.
* For a future meal you can freeze some of the meatballs, either cooked or raw.
