Waikiki Meatballs

3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
20 oz can Crushed Pineapple (drained but KEEP THE SYRUP!)
1/2 Cup Vinegar
1 1/2 Tablespoons Soy Sauce

Mix the cornstarch and the brown sugar together so there are no lumps of cornstarch. Stir in the juice that was drained off the pineapple, vinegar, and soy sauce. Cook over Medium/high heat stirring constantly until mixture thickens & boils. Boil 1 minute more (Sauce will get darker). Stir in the Pineapple. Then add meatballs and cook till heated through. Serve over rice.

**I normally use store bought pre-cooked Swedish meatballs to go in the sauce. I either pop the meatballs in the broiler to heat them before I add them to the sauce or let them simmer in the sauce to heat up. If you want to go fully homemade here is the meatball recipe that came with the sauce recipe:

1 1/2 pounds Ground Beef
2/3 Cup Oat Meal
1/3 cup minced onions
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 cup milk

Mix oat meal, onions, egg, salt, ginger, and milk well. Add ground beef and mix till thoroughly blended. Shape in to balls. Broil until fully cooked.
