Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Since I always have my meatballs in the freezer, this is a ridiculously easy and quick dinner to throw together.
I use this recipe since it’s the one my mom always made and we all really like it. You could use a premade sweet and sour sauce, but I find them to be overly sweet and much more expensive than if you made it yourself.
SWEET AND SOUR MEATBALLS
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 T cornstarch
1 can (13 1/4 oz) pinapple chunks, in juice
1/3 cup vinegar
1 T soy sauce
Meatballs, cooked (I usually do about 3 cups)
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped (optional)
Rice, for serving
Mix brown sugar and cornstarch together in a skillet.
Add pineapple with juice, vinegar, and soy sauce.
Stir in, heat to boiling.  Let boil for a couple of minutes to thicken, stirring.
Reduce heat and add meatballs, celery, and bell pepper.
Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes, or until veggies are crisp-tender.
Serve with rice.
