Sweet & Sour Meatballs

This is a family favorite and was passed down by my Grandma Healy. Every time I make it I think of her...

1 pd ground beef
1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
2 TBS finely chopped onions
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 egg

Mix all of the above ingredients together and roll into 1 inch balls.
You can cook them by either:
1-cook over medium heat until brown on your stove (about 20 minutes) or;
2-cook in an ungreased cookie sheet at 400 degrees until light brown (about 20-25 minutes)
While meatballs are cooking make your sweet and sour sauce.

Sweet & Sour Sauce:
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 TBS cornstarch
1 can pineapple chunks
1/2 cup vinegar
1 TBS soy sauce
1 small green pepper coarsely chopped (or not)

Mix brown sugar and cornstarch in skillet. Stir in pineapple chunks, vinegar and soy sauce. Heat to boiling stirring constantly; reduce heat. Add meatballs to sauce and cover. Simmer, stirring occasionally for about 10 minutes. Stir in green pepper. Continue cooking until peppers are crisp but tender, about 5 minutes. Serve over rice.
