Sweet and Sour Meatballs

1 lb ground beef
1 egg
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp Worcestershire
1 tsp granulated sugar

1 (20 oz) can pineapple chunks, drained with juice reserved
1/3 cup water
3 tbsp distilled white vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tbsp cornstarch
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp seasoned salt
1 large carrot diced
1 bell pepper, chopped to 1/2 inch pieces

Preheat oven to 400. Lightly grease a large, shallow baking sheet.

In a large bowl, thoroughly mix the ground beef, eggs, bread crumbs, onion, ginger, seasoned salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and sugar. Shape into one inch balls.

Place meatballs in a single layer on prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes; set aside.

To make the sauce, mix enough water with the reserved pineapple juice to make 1 cup. In a large pot over medium heat, combine the juice mixture, 1/3 cup water, vinegar, soy sauce, and brown sugar. Stir in cornstarch, ginger and seasoning salt, until smooth. Cover and cook until thickened.

Stir pineapple chunks, carrot, green pepper and meatballs into the sauce. Gently stir to coat the meatballs with the sauce. Simmer, uncovered, for about 20 minutes, or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked.
