Homemade Organic Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup Homemade Organic Beef Stock
  • 1 package Homemade Organic Basic Freezer Meatballs
  • 1 cup organic brown rice
  • 1 tsp. Real Salt
  • 4 Tbsp. home rendered tallow, divided
  • 1 cup organic diced pineapple (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup organic green bell pepper, 1″ dice
  • 1 cup organic carrots, sliced 1/2″ thick
  • 1 cup organic yellow onion, 1″ dice
  • 2 tsp. organic sesame seeds
  • 1/2 tsp. organic minced fresh ginger; OR organic powdered ginger
  • 3 organic garlic cloves, minced; OR  tsp. organic granulated garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. organic Nama Shoyu (soy sauce)
  • 3 Tbsp. organic unbleached flour combined with 3 Tbsp. organic pasture butter (roux)

Here’s How I do it:

  • Put 2 Tbsp. tallow into a saucepan and melt.
  • Add the uncooked rice, 1 tsp. of salt and beef stock according to the type of rice you’re using  (1 cup for white rice, 2 cups for brown).
  • Once it’s boiling, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 25 minutes for white rice and 45 minutes for brown.  Do NOT stir.
  • While the rice is simmering, cut the bell pepper and onion into 1″ cubes.
  • Heat the saucepan and add the remaining 2 Tbsp. of tallow.
  • Once it’s melted, saute the onions for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Adding the bell pepper and saute for 3 to 4 minutes more.
  • Add the remaining two cups of chicken broth or stock to the saucepan.
  • Add the sugar, vinegar, sesame seeds, pinch or two of salt, pineapple (if using) and meatballs.
  • Allow to saute until the meatballs are heated through to get the flavor mixed with all of the ingredients.
  • Mix the roux into the saucepan and blend thoroughly.
  • Once the sauce is thickened, the dish is ready to serve over hot brown rice.
  • Enjoy!
