I usually hate when ppeople change recipes and then rate them, but I had to make changes for what I had on hand. I used brown sugar instead of Splenda and canned pineapple chunks. Very good served over rice.

I made these tonight and my family enjoyed them. The sauce is simple and delicious. I added a pinch oregano spice to the mix.

This has become one of my favorite recipes. I love it! I've tried making it with chicken, but it just tastes better with meatballs.
