Freezer Meal – Sweet and Sour Meatballs

  • Author: Mavis Butterfield



1 can pineapple chunks {20 oz}
1/3 cup water
3 tablespoons white vinegar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
30 Freezer Meal Meatballs
1 large green pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks
Cooked rice


Drain pineapple, save juice and set pineapple aside. Measure 1 cup of pineapple juice {add water to reach a cup if the can doesn’t yield enough} and pour into a large skillet. Add 1/3 cup water, vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar and cornstarch. Stir until smooth. Cook over medium heat until sauce begins to thicken. Add the pineapple, meatballs and green pepper. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until meatballs are hot. Serve with rice.

You can also make this meal as a freezer meal when preparing the meatballs. After the meatballs have cooked, follow the recipe above. Instead of serving hot over rice, let cool and then freeze in a Ziploc or other freezer safe container. To prepare after freezing, simply warm the mixture over the stove until hot. Then serve freezer meal over rice.
