I was so glad this recipe had no onions and garlic. I hate both. The meatballs were so moist and sweetI loved them. I'll make this over and over.

I had precooked meatballs on hand from Sams club and used this recipe as a base, simply cooking them in the barbecue and pineapple... worked great.

This is delicious, based on some of the reviews, cooked meatballs in the oven, added egg and breadcrumbs as well. Even a little brown sugar was added o the Bar- b- q mixture. Meatballs are awesome, added pineapple juice to the water mix for the rice....could not stop eating these meatballs ahead of time....so good.!

I will definitely try this again, however I will use an egg or bread crumbs to hold the meatballs together. They were mushy and had no form. I cooked the rice separately. That worked for me. Overall, my kids loved it.

I will try ..but modify a bit. I will use eggs and bread crumbs in my ground turkey...and then bake. I see where someone else said to drain juice off of pineapples ...so I will also try that. this meal seems like it should be very tasty. couldn't submit without rating it ...and I have not make it yet....will rate again in a few days after I make it.
