Here is a delicious recipe for sweet and sour meatballs! We made them for a late dinner and added homemade white potato fries on the side.



  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 cup sweet potato purée (Leftover mashed sweet potato works great. Or bake a sweet potato and mash it up.)
  • 1 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp. sea salt (or pink salt)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. onion powder


  • Preheat oven to 450F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil.
  • Place all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl & knead until fully combined.
  • Take 1 Tbsp. of mixture at a time & roll into balls. Place evenly on the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 12-15 min. (They are done when cooked through & starting to brown.) While they are baking, make the sauce.




  • 2 cups fresh pineapple cubes (about 1/2 a pineapple)
  • 1/4 cup bone broth, cool
  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 1/2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. raw honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp. fresh, grated ginger
  • 1 1/2 tsp. arrowroot starch
  • 1/8 tsp. turmeric powder
  • sprinkle of salt


  • Purée pineapple in blender or food processor (you should end up with 1 cup pineapple purée).
  • In a small bowl or cup, stir together bone broth & arrowroot starch. Put into a large saucepan along with the pineapple & the rest of the ingredients. Whisk together.
  • Cook over medium heat, constantly whisking, until the sauce has boiled and thickened.


Add the cooked meatballs to the pan of sauce. Let simmer on low for a few min. Serve hot.

Tip: The sauce can be used on it’s own, hot or cold, as a dipping sauce.
