I got this recipe from one of my best friends in college. It's seriously one of the easiest S&S recipes. You can also make it with rotisserie chicken/leftover chicken or chicken nuggets. I'll give you the actual amounts for the sauce (enough for 4 people) and then you'll have to adjust the meatballs and rice according to your preference and family size.
Sweet & Sour Meatballs
-1 Pot of rice $1
-1/4 bag of meatballs $1.25
Make according to packages. I usually brown my meatballs in the oven.
1 C pineapple juice (add water if necessary)
1 T vegetable oil
Heat on low for 1 minute.
6 T water
3 T corn starch
1 T soy sauce
3 T vinegar
1/3 C sugar
*Mix together in the juice mixture. Stir on medium heat until thick.
Approx. cost for sauce ingredients thus far $1
1 Can of Pineapple Chunks $1
1/2 Chopped Green Pepper $0.50 (assuming they are 1/each, but can be found for less)
Add pineapple and peppers. Heat until hot and serve over meatballs and rice.
Total cost for dinner: $4.75
