Sweet and Sour Meatballs

So I went looking through my cookbook in the hopes to make something different. i came across this one. Its from a Quick Cooking magazine. Lets just say I am so happy I made it. It was great.. My husband just could not stay out of the meatballs. Its going on my make again list.

1 can (20 oz) pineapple chunks
1/3 cup water
3 tbsp vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tbsp corn starch
30 meatballs- I used frozen ones thawed out, home-style
1 large green bell pepper- cut into 1" pieces
Hot cooked rice

Drain pineapple, reserving juice, set pineapple aside. Add water to juice to make 1 cup if needed. Pour into a large skillet. Add 1/3 cup water, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar and corn starch. Stir until smooth. cook until thick, stirring constantly. Add pineapple, meatballs and bell pepper. Simmer uncovered for 20 mins. Serve over rice.. Makes 6 servings

Love sweet and sour stuff. I had a sweet and sour meatball recipe I made many years ago (talking maybe before having you) that was good.
