Sweet and Sour Meatballs

From the Kitchen of: Jean Marie Andersen

1 lb hamburger
½ tsp salt
1 egg
1 tbsp water
¼ cup flour
1 cup pineapple tidbits, drained
(save juice)
2 tbsp soy sauce
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup vinegar
1 red or green pepper, sliced
2 medium onions, diced
1 cup sliced carrots
2 tbsp cornstarch

Combine hamburger, salt, egg, water and flour for meatballs. Brown meatballs in frying pan. Sauté until cooked. Remove from frying pan and drain. Drain syrup from pineapple and add water to pineapple juice to make 2 cups liquid. Add brown sugar and cornstarch (mixed together) to liquid and pour into frying pan. Add vinegar and soy sauce. Heat and stir until thick. Cook carrots beforehand until tender. Arrange meatballs, green peppers, onions (I sauté the peppers and onion in the frying pan until tender before I do the sauce) and pineapple and simmer in covered pan for 15 minutes. Serve over rice.
