I make a similar Sweet and sour meatball. I find that adding 1/4c of ketchup really adds a tangy flavour that this recipe seemed to lack . I also substitute flour with cornstarch. It gives the meatballs a beautiful glazed effect.

I made the sauce, substituting the pineapple juice for water and cutting the brown sugar in half. I also added about 1/4 - 1/2 tsp of dry mustard, for a little twang. I cheated a little and used store bought frozen meatballs that were heated in the oven. Threw the meatballs in a crockpot, threw the cooked sauce over it and let it hang out for an hour. It was a hit with everyone, including teenagers!

This was terrific. The only changes I made was to use about 1/4 cup of onion flakes instead of regular onion and I almost doubled the recipe. I still did not have any leftovers. My kids loved it. I also cooked my meatballs first in the oven for 20 minutes to keep them from breaking apart and then I don't have to watch them. Much easier that way.
