Waikiki Meatballs over Rice

This is a super delicious, sweet and sour type meatball recipe. I got it from my momma's cookbook.

1 ½ pounds ground beef
2/3 cup cracker crumbs
1/3 cup minced onion
1 egg
1 ½ teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoons ginger
¼ cup milk
2 tablespoons ginger
1 15-20 ounce can pineapple tidbits or chunks (reserve juice)
1/3 cup vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1/3 cup chopped green pepper

Mix thoroughly beef, crumbs, onion, egg, salt, ginger, and milk. Shape mixture by rounded tablespoons into balls. Cook meatballs over medium heat ‘til done. Remove meatballs; keep warm. In a separate saucepan, mix cornstarch and sugar. Pour juice from pineapples in the saucepan, along with the vinegar, and soy sauce until smooth. Cook on medium to high heat, stirring constantly until mixture thickens and boils. Boil and stir 1 minute. Add meatballs, pineapple tidbits and green pepper; heat through. Serve over Rice.
