Mix together 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, beef, onion, 1/4 cup rice, seasoned salt and pepper in large bowl until blended. Divide mixture into 24 portions; roll firmly into 1-1/4-inch balls.
Spray large skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Place remaining 3/4 cup barbecue sauce, pineapple and water in skillet; stir to combine. Place meatballs in skillet on top of sauce mixture.
Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer 10 to 12 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through (160°F), stirring carefully. Uncover, simmer 2 to 3 minutes more or until sauce is thickened slightly.
Meanwhile, prepare remaining 2 cups rice according to package directions, omitting salt and butter and adding bell pepper. Serve meatballs and sauce over rice.

Great recipe! Thanks. ^_^ I don't care if it's "Hawaiian" or not, it turned out great. You have nothing to be ashamed of. ^_^

Never tried it, but don't you folks know that anything that has pineapple as an ingredient is authentically Hawaiian. Especially to mainlanders.

Turned out great for us. Making it again tonight per the kids request! Only modification was i used Panko and an egg instead of instant rice to bind the meatballs.

Really -- not authentic Hawaiian? Boohoo! Get a life. This recipe looks good and I want to try it, authentic or not.

I made this beautiful dish tonight. It was great! A little bit on the sweet side because of the amount of bbq sauce, but still enjoyable! I did not put rice on the meat neither use an egg to bind the ingredients together.
Thanks for sharing this recipe.
