  • 2 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/8 ts Ground red pepper

In a medium bowl, combine egg, bread crumbs , cilantro, garlic, red
pepper and salt. Add peanuts and beef. Mix well. Shape into 1"
meatballs. Place in shallow baking dish and bake for 20 minutes at
350 or until no longer pink. Remove from oven and drain. (To make
ahead, cool meatballs then chill for up to 48 hours.) Put one
meatball and one pineapple chunk on skewer and return to baking dish.
(I just dump them in the baking dish, as I put them all in a serving
bowl.) Brush with sweet & sour sauce. (I just dump the sauce on and
toss.) Bake for 5 to 8 minutes more. (Bake chilled meatballs for 10
minutes.) Heat remaining sauce and serve with meatballs.
