Recipe type: Main
Serves: about 14 meatballs
Ingredients
  • Meatballs:
  • 1 lb. ground pork (you can use chicken, turkey, or beef, too!)
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • Salt, to taste
  • Sauce:
  • 1 Tbsp cold water
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 6 Tbsp Fructevia
  • ⅓ cup cider vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp ketchup
  • ¼ cup pineapple juice
  • Cooked rice or noodles (optional)
  • Green onions, sliced (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the pork, egg, panko, garlic, and salt until fully incorporated (I just used my hands).
  3. Shape pork mixture into 1-1/2-inch balls and place on the cookie sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until browned.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cold water and cornstarch until smooth. Set aside.
  5. In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the Fructevia, cider vinegar, soy sauce, ketchup, and pineapple juice. Bring mixture to a boil. Add water/cornstarch mixture and stir constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat.
  6. Using tongs, dip each meatball into the Sweet and Sour sauce. Serve over rice or noodles and sprinkle with green onions, if desired.
