Sweet-and-Sour Meatballs

1 can (20 ounces) unsweetened pineapple chunks

1 package (12 ounces) frozen fully cooked homestyle or Swedish meatballs, thawed

1 large green pepper, cut into 1-inch pieces

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1/3 cup cold water

3 tablespoons cider vinegar

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

Hot cooked rice, optional

Thinly sliced green onions, optional

Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Set pineapple aside. Add enough water to juice if needed to measure 1 cup. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the meatballs, green pepper and juice mixture until heated through.

In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, cold water, vinegar and soy sauce until smooth. Add brown sugar and reserved pineapple to the pan; stir in cornstarch mixture. Bring to a boil; cook and stir until thickened, about 2 minutes. If desired, serve with rice and top with green onions.
