Sweet & Sour Pork Meatballs

Sweet & Sour Pork Meatballs

Comfort food at it's best.  It does not matter that we are halfway into Spring, I like Meatballs at all times, and we have had quite a lot of rain, which {whether it is cold out or not} always puts me in the mood for comfort food.

I served this with mashed potatoes and corn on the side.  This is a saucy dish, rice will go very well with this. We haven't had mashed potatoes in a while, otherwise I would have rather served this with rice. Next time, and yes there will be a next time as this was another winner.

Sweet & Sour Pork Meatballs

750g Pork Sausages, meat removed from the casings
1/2 cup White bread crumbs
1/2 cup Instant Oatmeal
1 Extra-Large Egg, lightly beaten
1/2 t Ground Cumin
1/2 TB Dried Parsley
1 can (410g) Pineapple pieces
2 TB Cornflour
2 TB Apple Cider Vinegar
1 TB Soya Sauce
1 TB Tomato Sauce
1 TB Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Water

1.) Pre-heat oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a large oven dish with Spray 'N Cook.
2.) Mix the Pork Sausage meat, Bread crumbs, Oatmeal, Egg, Cumin and the Dried Parsley until well combined.
3.) Form little meatballs and place in a single layer in the prepared oven dish - bake 30 minutes or until cooked.
4.) Drain the Pineapple pieces and pour the liquid into a large sauce pan - add the Cornflour and stir to mix - add the Apple Cider Vinegar, Soya Sauce, Tomato Sauce, Brown Sugar and Water - mix well and add the Pineapple pieces - simmer over low heat, stirring continuously, until the sauce has thickened.
5.) When the Meatballs are done - remove from the oven and place in the sauce mixture - stir gently and simmer for 2 - 3 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
