Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Just finished lunch with hubby. We had this sweet and sour meatballs. I needed to text my dear mother to ask her way of cooking this. I just made a little twist to her recipe. Exact measurement of ingredients are pretty important with this dish. I tell you, you don't want to over season this one. Too much sweet will end up dessert on your plate and too much sour will make hubby mad. Lucky me I got ready made meatballs at local shops so I just cooked the sauce. Oh, by the way, I don't have stock of canned pineapple. I was about to ask husband to run to the shop but when I looked at the fridge, I still have fresh pineapples left (healthier, I guess). Whew!

Here's my sauce recipe:
2 tbsp of olive oil or sunflower oil
3 cloves of garlic
1 medium sized onion (cut in 4 parts)
1 medium carrot sliced
1 bell pepper (I used yellow one)
1 cup pineapple chunks
7 tbsp brown sugar
3/4 cup water
5 tbsp vinegar
4 tbsp banana ketchup
1 tbsp of cornstarch dissolve in 2 tbsp of water.

Cooking method:
1. Fry the meatballs and set it aside when done.
2. In a thick bottom sauce pan, saute garlic, onion, carrots, bell pepper and pinepples.
3. Dissolve sugar in water and pour it into your sauteed ingredients. Simmer for 5 minutes.
4. Put the banana ketchup and vinegar. Let it boil. (about 5 minutes again)
5. Finally, add the cornstarch solution and simmer the sauce gently until it thickened.
6. Pour over your cooked meatballs.
7. Served hot with rice.

Hope you like.
