  • 1 pound ground meat 1/2 pound beef and half pork
  • 1-2 sliced bread cut in little pieces (about 28 grams)
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ tsp. salt or more adjust to suit taste buds
  • ¼ teaspoon bouillon powder or replace with salt
  • ¼ tablespoon chopped parsley
  • ¼ small onion
  • ½ teaspoon white pepper
  • 1-2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/ 2 teaspoon minced hot pepper or cayenne pepper

Pineapple Barbecue Sauce



  • Add milk, bread, onions, garlic and parsley in a food processor, pulse several times until blend.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, salt, white pepper, cayenne pepper, and onion blend.
  • Lightly mix the meatballs with your hands and shape into balls about 16 balls - do not over mix. Store, covered, in refrigerator until needed.
  • Line a baking pan with foil; top with a wire rack. Arrange meatballs out in a single layer. While the meatballs are baking oil will slowly drip to the bottom of the baking pan.
  • Bake meatballs until cooked through or browned, about 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.

Pineapple Barbecue Sauce

  • While the meatballs are baking, add crushed pineapple and barbecue sauce in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes- stirring occasionally.
  • Dip each meatball individually (using a toothpick) in the sauce mixture. Or pour the sauce over the meatballs and serve.


  1. In this recipe, you can use only ground beef. However, half pork and half beef make for the MOST flavorful and juicy meatball.
