    Meatballs Hawaiian

    Serves 6

    1-1/4 tsp garlic powder
    1-1/4 tsp grated fresh ginger
    Generous grind of black pepper
    1 lb extra-lean ground beef
    3 tbs finely chopped green onion
    1 egg
    1/2 C French-bread crumbs (2 slices)
    1 C uncooked rice
    1 8-oz can no-sugar-added pineapple chunks, in natural juices
    1/4 C firmly packed brown sugar
    2 tbs cornstarch
    1/4 C white wine vinegar
    1 tsp light soy sauce
    2 green bell peppers, cut in thin strips or rings


    In a bowl, sprinkle garlic powder, ginger and black pepper over meat. Add onion, egg and bread crumbs. Blend until well mixed. Shape into 1-inch balls. Cook meatballs in a nonstick skillet over medium heat until well browned on all sides. Set aside and keep warm.
    Cook rice according to package directions, omitting salt and butter or margarine.
    Drain pineapple chunks, reserving liquid. Mix reserved juice with water to make 1 cup. Pour into skillet. Add brown sugar, cornstarch, vinegar and soy sauce. Heat stirring constantly, about 3 minutes, or until sauce thickens. Add meatballs, pineapple chunks and bell pepper. Stir to coat evenly with sauce. Cover and simmer 10 minutes.
    Serve over rice.

    I ran this through the recipe builder on WW on-line. I did not add the rice as everyone's rice may not have the same point value. So, for everything except the rice it came out to 6 pts at 6 servings.

    Looks really good to me.

    I'm thinking that I could use Trader Joe's Meatless Meatballs and just prepare the rice & sauce. I wonder where that would put the points? I'll have to check when I go home.

    See, my name fits....why not wonder?
