Shish-ka-Bob Marinade

For Chicken or Beef...  Get those grills out!!

1/2 tbsp pepper
1 tbsp oregano
1 tsp onion salt
1 tsp garlic salt
2 tbsp lemon juice

Sweet & Tangy Wings

1/4 c apricot preserves
1/4 c balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
3/4 tsp salt

Set aside 1/4 c mixture.  Add wings to a large bowl and toss to coat.  Grill.

Bast with preserve mixture during last 10 minutes of cooking on the grill!

Hawaiian Meatballs

You can either make your own meatballs or I buy the frozen meatballs for a FASTER meal!!!

Meatballs (if you want to take the time to do it):   BUY FROZEN... they taste the same to me!
1.5 lbs ground beef
2/3 c cracker crumbs
1/3 c minced onion
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ginger
1/4 c milk
1 tbsp shortening (to put in pan before frying)

Sauce - I DOUBLE this recipe!
2 tbsp corn starch
1/2 c brown sugar
1 can pineapple tidbits - drain syrup and keep it!  (13 1/2 oz can)
1/3 c vinegar
1 tbsp soy sauce
1/3 c chopped green pepper
I add a little green onion, too.

Mix corn starch & sugar.  Stir in pineapple syrup, vinegar, soy sauce.  Pour into pan over medium heat.  Stir till it boils.  Boil and stir 1 minute.  Add meatballs, pineapple, and green peppers.  (onion, too, if you want...)  Heat thoroughly. 

I love this!

I make white rice to put the hawaiian meatballs over and its delicious!
