Grilled Sweet & Sour Meatball Skewers


  • 1 lb Laura's Lean Ground Beef
  • 1/4 cup White whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tbsp Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1/2 cup Organic ketchup
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1 tbsp Lime juice
  • 2 tbsps Tamari
  • 1 tbsp Sriracha (optional)
  • 2 Large bell peppers (cubed)
  • 1 Large red onion (cubed)
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2 Pineapple (cubed)


1. First, prepare meatballs. Place Laura’s 96% Lean ground beef, white whole wheat flour, garlic powder, ground ginger, salt, and egg into a medium-size bowl.

2. Next, prep yellow squash by finely grating with a cheese grater. Place shredded squash on top of 2 pieces of paper towel and squeeze out as much excess moisture as possible. Measure and then add around 1/2 cup of shredded squash into the bowl.

3. Mix with a wooden spoon or your hands until combined. Using a heaping tablespoon, scoop out meat and roll into balls. Place into a large container or casserole dish and set aside.

4. Prepare sauce by mixing together all sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Remove 1/3 cup for later. Use the remaining sauce to pour over meatballs. Toss. Place in fridge and let marinate for at least 15 minutes.

5. While the meatballs are marinating, prepare veggies and fruit. Slice 2 bell peppers and a red onion into large, square pieces. Then, season with olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and lime juice. Slice pineapple into square chunks.

6. Once you’ve got everything prepped, you can make your skewers. Alternate between veggies, pineapple, and meatballs.

7. Preheat grill to 425ºF. Lay a piece of tin foil down and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place skewers on tin foil and let grill for 15 minutes, rotating skewers every 5 minutes.
