Hawaiian Meatballs

Found a recipe online for sweet & sour meatballs, and had to majorly modify it based on what we had in the pantry. It turned out great! Serve with rice and grilled veggies.

1 1/2 lbs ground beef
3/4 cup bread crumbs (I didn't have quite enough so I added some quick oats)
2/3 cup evaporated milk
1 teaspoon seasoning salt (Lawry's recommended)
1/3 cup flour
3 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 (13 1/2 ounce) can pineapple chunks
5 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon teriyaki sauce (we loe Yoshidas, from Costco) +1/2 cup brown sugar
1 yellow pepper, chopped into bite size chunks
1/2 tomato chopped

Combine the first four ingredients, mix well, but lightly.
Shape into meatballs--about 36 (may be frozen at this point and thawed as needed).
Roll meat ball in flour and brown in the shortening.
Place in a casserole dish and cover with the sweet and sour sauce.

Drain pineapple (set aside)- reserve juice.
Add water to the juice to make 1 cup liquid.
In a pot over medium heat, blend cornstarch in the juice, then add vinegar, lemon juice, brown sugar, and teriyaki sauce, cook until clear.
Add the pineapple, yellow pepper, and tomato.
Pour over the meatballs and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity.
