I found this recipe I had clipped from a Kraft foods magazine. I made it for me the other night and it was pretty easy and good. Plus it adds some different ingredients that you wouldn't normally think would go in sweet and sour meatballs.

  1. Combine all ingredients except rice in large skillet; cover. Cook on medium heat 10 mins. stirring occasionally.
  2. Increase heat to medium high; uncover. Cook 8-10 minutes. or till sauce is thickened and meatballs are heated through, stirring occasionally.
  3. Serve over hot cooked rice. I added canned pineapple instead of peppers since I didn't have any peppers on hand. It was good and I didn't cook quite as long.
