Hula Meatballs http://www.davita.com/recipes/appetizers and snacks/hula-meatballs/a/4741

DaVita renal dietitian Kathy from Pennsylvania shares her recipe for Hula Meatballs, a hearty appetizer loaded with Hawaiian flavor. Ground beef is enhanced with onion, black pepper, nutmeg, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, brown and white sugars, pineapple juice, pineapple chunks and red and green bell peppers. This is a low-phosphorus dish, and by using reduced-sodium soy sauce, you can keep the sodium content down. Don’t be afraid to serve Hula Meatballs to friends and family members who are diabetic or have kidney problems. They can enjoy these yummy meatballs without going off their diets.
