Helpful hints

  • Reduced sodium soy sauce contains 500 to 600 mg sodium per tablespoon compared to 950 to 1050 mg sodium in regular soy sauce. Limit to the amount specified in the recipe.
  • Make meatballs ahead and refrigerate. When ready to serve, heat ingredients together and transfer to a warming dish.

I am sorry, but what is a 2-meatball serving?!? It is unrealistic! Dietitian comment: The serving size is reasonable as an appetizer considering additional items will be consumed. If you are counting as an entree I suggest 4-6 meatballs depending on your nutrition targets.

Recipes should be printer friendly, printer ink is costly. I print recipes so I have a quick reference. This recipe a little too much sugar. MB

Made these last night... absolutely awesome! A hit with the whole family, including our 8 year old daughter. As the recipe made almost 50 meatballs, I'm hoping that the leftovers freeze well. I've divided them in portion/meal size servings. Thoughts?... Thanks.

Do you think these could be made with ground turkey. Son can not have beef. Moderator comment: I think the recipe would be even better with turkey. Use the 7& fat instead of ground breast meat. The nutrients will be about the same with lower fat content.

A teammate made these for our Luau party and they were very good. The pineapple adds a great flavor. The patients and teammates loved them!

These are fantastic! I I served 4 balls with rice and some of the sauce for dinner and they are great!
