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.

Asked for a recipe for chicken and one for meatballs comes up. Big difference between and cow and a chicken last time looked.

I used a different bbq sauce that I had in my pantry. It had a bit of spiciness and that made the recipe even better. I also added some sweet Italian sausage to my ground beef. I thought I would have enough to freeze half but almost all of it got eaten. It was excellent!

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.
