Hawaiian Meatball

The second dish which Minoo made was Hawaiian Meatball. The sweet and sour meatballs are very appetizing and kids will love this dish. Try and make it for your family.


Minoo served the Hawaiian Meatballs with steamed rice. A little more sauce will be perfect to go with the rice.


The Hawaiian Meatball is good for potluck too.


  • 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
  • 2/3 cup chopped onion, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup cracker/bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 12oz can pineapple, reserve the juice
  • 1 cup chopped red or green pepper
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • mushroom, optional

IMG_3224Mix them really well with your hand.
IMG_3225Shape them into meatballs.
IMG_3226Repeat until all the meatballs are formed.
IMG_3229Combine the brown sugar, corn starch, vinegar, soy sauce and pineapple juice and mix until smooth.
IMG_3231Shallow fry the meatballs in a frying pan until golden brown.
IMG_3233Remove the meatballs and drain on paper towel.

    That looks great ! Do you think they can be baked too (instead of pan fried) ?

    Hi LotusRapper, you can surely bake the meat balls instead of pan frying them. Bake them at 350F for 20 to 30 minutes or until they’re brown.
