Let's talk meatballs. They have always been a favourite in our house. Sweet & sour meatballs especially so. While following AIP I find that easy protein options are key! So, you guessed it, I've been eating a lot of meatballs. You do eventually get tired of plain old meatballs, though. Since I have given up refined sugar, soy, and tomatoes, my former sweet & sour sauce was definitely out. I got a craving for some so I decided to try a clean (pineapple based) sweet & sour sauce. It did not disappoint!
Now, let's be clear. This sauce is a treat, not a staple. You're going to want to drink the stuff and slather it on everything. (You've been warned.) While following AIP we want to keep our sugar intake (yes, even natural sugars) in check. Between 10-20 g of fructose per day has been recommended. So enjoy the sauce, but try not to go crazy with it. That being said, this sauce has the goodness of bone broth, ginger, & turmeric in it. All of which make for a happy body!
SWEET & SOUR SAUCE
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. Try it with my Chicken Strips!
