The first time I tried this dish, I fell in love with it immediately.

I credit my ex-wife, “Ambyr”, for the sauce part of the recipe.

This dish is made with “Sheik’s “Taste of Italy”: Melt in Ur Mouth Meatballs”.

Served best over a bed of “Sheik’s Syrian-Creole Rice Pilaf.”

“It’s Munchie Time!”

  1. Vegetables
  2. 2 cups red peppers, cubed
  3. 2 cups sweet onions, cubed
  4. 2 cups broccoli, deflowered
  5. Meatballs:
  6. 1 lbs. Ground Beef (80% lean)
  7. 1/2 cup sweet onions, chopped fine
  8. 1/2 cup Pastene Italian bread crumbs
  9. 1/4 cup milk
  10. 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  11. 1 tsp. sea salt
  12. 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  13. 1 egg
  14. Meatball Sauté
  15. 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
  16. 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  17. 1 cup ketchup
  18. Sweet N' Sour Sauce
  19. 3/4 cup cold water
  20. 1/3 cup vinegar
  21. 1/2 cup brown sugar
  22. 1 can pineapple chunks (20 oz.)
  23. 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  24. 1/2 tsp. chilli powder


  1. Wash and prep your vegetables. Cube the red peppers and sweet onions and deflower and cut the broccoli.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients for the meatballs and mix thoroughly.

  3. Roll out your meatballs slightly smaller in size than that of a golf ball. If you got a good eye, the recipe should yield 36 of these scrumptious babies.

  4. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and take a 9 by 15 baking dish, in line it with heavy duty aluminum foil.

  5. Next, preheat a large fry pan to high heat with 2 tbsp. of olive oil mixed with 1 tbsp. of Worcestershire sauce. Lightly saute the meatballs on all sides to a slightly brown color. You do not want to cook the meatballs through! Just saute them.

  6. When the meatballs are done, carefully place them in the bottom of the casserole dish.

  7. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients for the sweet and sour sauce. Use a whisk to ensure that all the ingredients are mixed thoroughly. Next, add your fresh vegetables and again, mix thoroughly.

  8. Carefully pour the sweet and sour sauce and vegetables over the meatballs. Cover with foil and bake at 350 degrees in the oven for 1 hour. Cook an additional half hour, uncovered.

  9. Fresh out of the oven!
