Easy Hawaiian Meatballs And Rice Recipe!

Recently, I have been overly occupied with finding quick easy recipes that are new to my family!

I found a website called Ready, Set, Eat and it has just the type of recipes I have been looking for.  Ready, Set, Eat is operated by ConAgra foods, so the recipes feature ConAgra products and that works for me since I have a lot of ConAgra products in my stockpile!  An added bonus is that Ready, Set, Eat also periodically has coupons for ConAgra Products (PAM, Healthy Choice,  that are on the rare side for the most part.

If your looking for fast and simple dinner ideas and don’t mind the occasional coupon then click here and register for Ready, Set, Eat’s newsletter!  Your account can also be set up to correlate the recipes with local sales by entering your zip code.  I haven’t gotten that far into it yet, but I do like a ton of the recipes so far and I like that they only send out one or two emails a week.

I plan on trying this recipe for Hawaiian Meatballs next week!  Prep time is 15 minutes, cooking time is 30 minutes and there are only 5 ingredients!


  • 1 can (8 oz each) crushed pineapple in juice, divided
  • 1 cup Hunt’s® Original Barbecue Sauce, divided
  • 1 pound ground round beef (85% lean)
  • 2-1/4 cups instant brown rice, uncooked, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • PAM® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 3/4 cup frozen chopped green bell pepper


Stir together half the pineapple and 3/4 cup barbecue sauce in small bowl; set aside.
Mix remaining pineapple, remaining 1/4 cup barbecue sauce, beef, 1/4 cup rice, salt and pepper in large bowl until well blended. Shape mixture into 24 meatballs, about 1-1/4 inches each. Place in large skillet sprayed with cooking spray; spoon sauce mixture over meatballs.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir gently and cover. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 16 to 18 minutes or until meatballs are cooked through (160°F).
Meanwhile, prepare remaining 2 cups rice according to package directions, omitting salt and butter and adding bell pepper. Serve meatballs and sauce over rice.
