Rated 4 out of 5 by from Picky husband enjoyed it and was surprised that the pineapples blended so well. Picky husband enjoyed it and was surprised that the pineapples blended so well. I let the pineapples cook for about 5 minutes instead of putting it in last minute, so it can soak up some of the sauce and soften a bit. I also used 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce, but next time I'll use a full cup and tweak it more w/ pineapple juice b/c my husband wanted more sauce for his rice :). This recipe is a keeper... SOOOOOOO quick and easy :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This was very yummy! This was very yummy! My boyfriend, grandparents, and I all loved it. I will definitely make it again. I think my kids would like it too. I think it would be better to mix the rice in the pan before serving, so it gets the "sauce" on it. Also, I think I would like it with some crushed red pepper flakes next time to give it a little heat. Yum-O though!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This meal was very easy, and fast! This meal was very easy, and fast! I made my own meatballs, which only take 20 minutes in the oven, so while the meatballs were in the oven, I cut up veggies and got the sauce ready. It really only took me about 30 minutes, since the meatballs were already cook and just needed to be tossed around in the sauce on the skillet. I will make this again when I need something quick for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WE LOVED THIS! WE LOVED THIS! I also tweaked it a bit. 1. I used fresh made beef meatballs (healthier) 2. I doubled the whole recipe (glad I did! We snarfed it down without any leftovers!) 3. I used Jasmine Rice (MUCH BETTER than instant) 4. I also added 2 Tbsp. Brown sugar to my favorite local restaurant's BBQ sauce. This was a GREAT HIT with the whole family!! Definitely making this again!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This recipe had an excellent flavor! This recipe had an excellent flavor! I gave it a three because the sauce was too runny and the pineapple almost took over the meatballs. I might use only one can of pineapple next time. Someone else suggested madarin oranges. I like that idea. That might make a good trade for the second can of pineapple. It the sauce is still too thin, I might add a little cornstarch.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from This was not very good. This was not very good. The only reason it tasted okay to me is because I made my own meatballs and they were edible by themselves. The sauce was just weird to us and we eat another recipe for sweet and sour tasting meatballs that is great. I think it was the barbeque sauce maybe? I don't know. I just won't be making this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made a recipe similar to this one that was in the quarterly magazine that I receive. I made a recipe similar to this one that was in the quarterly magazine that I receive. This recipe is a little different from the one in the book. The one in the book uses less pinapple and it is served with instant brown rice. I love it. The kids in the neighborhood loved it too. I had to give them the recipe for thier moms.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I actually loved this! I actually loved this! My boyfriend wasn't too crazy about all the pineapple, so next time I might use two cans of juice but only one can for the pineapple chunks. The sauce was extremely easy and would also be a good one for a sweet and sour chicken. Next time I may add green peppers as well. Pretty happy with this.
