  • 2 pounds 93% lean ground beef
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 (20 ounce) can pineapple chunks with juice (juice reserved)
  • 4 ounces green bell pepper cut into bite-sized pieces
  • Water as needed
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, ginger, garlic powder, salt and pepper until combined.
  • Using your hands or a cookie dough scoop, form mixture into 1-inch balls. Place meatballs, pineapple chunks and bell pepper in an even layer on prepared pan and spray with cooking spray. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through and peppers are tender.
  • Meanwhile, prepare sauce by whisking together 1 cup reserved pineapple juice (if there isn’t enough left from the can, add enough water to get 1 cup of liquid), brown sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and cornstarch. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes or until thickened.

    Super easy and delicious–Easy to put together and just put in the fridge until ready to use. The kids are already asking when we are having this again–always a good sign! 🙂

    Portion size was big but without egg and breadcrumbs the meatballs were very dense and lacked flavor
