Hawaiian Meatballs

Time: 40 mins - Servings: 4


  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • 1 cup plain bread crumbs

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 cup low-fat milk

  • Dash of garlic powder

  • Dash of onion powder

  • 1 cup crushed pineapple with juice

  • 3/4 cup water

  • 1/3 cup honey

  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce

  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

  • 1 tablespoon flour


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.

  2. In a large bowl combine the beef, bread crumbs, egg, milk, garlic powder and onion powder. Mix well with your hands. Roll the meat mixture into 1 1/2 inch balls and arrange on a baking sheet. Bake for about 15 minutes, until browned on the outside and cooked through in the center.

  3. In the meantime, combine the crushed pineapple with juice, water, honey, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar and ground ginger in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and whisk in the flour until the sauce has thickened.

  4. Pour the sauce over the meatballs and stir to coat.
