I am a fan of quick and easy meals. As much as I want to cook, I don't want to be tied up for long hours in the kitchen preparing a meal. I want a dish that is delicious, subtantial and takes a reasonable amount of time to prepare and this dish fits the bill.

  • Heat a non-stick pan / skillet on low fire.
  • While that is heating, combine all the ingredients for the meatballs in a big bowl except for the milk, bread and water.
  • Put milk in a small bowl, soak the bread slices in it; squeeze out excess milk, then add the milk-soaked bread in the meat mixture, mix thoroughly until well combined then stir in the water to soften the mixture.
  • Form mixture into 1-inch balls; I made small meatballs so it will cook fast (that’s about a tablespoon of meat/ball).
  • Cook meatballs in the already hot non-stick pan; increase to medium low heat.
  • if you are not using non-stick pan, add about a tablespoon of cooking oil in the hot pan before adding the meatballs. Cook until brown.


  • You may do this in a separate saucepan while the meatball is cooking or wait for the meatballs to cook and use the same pan for the sauce like I did (I hate washing dishes), just discard the oil from frying before adding the sauce ingredients.
  • Combine pineapple juice, vinegar, brown sugar and ketchup in the pan, stir and bring to a boil.
  • Meanwhile mix cornstarch and water in a small bowl, stir and pour in the sauce mixture.
  • Bring to a boil and add in pineapple and red bell pepper.
  • Add the cooked meatballs and let simmer for about a minute before transfering to a serving platter.
  • Serve hot with steamed rice. Yumm!
