I made my own meatballs and this was really a hit with my company. Everyone raved at how good it was - Thanks Mr. Food!!

My boys loved them. Very east to make. Quick to prepare as well.

If I used fresh mango and pineapple instead of frozen, how would the cooking time change? (or would it?) Your recipes are always scrumptious!

This is for everyone out who needs nutrition information for these wonderful recipes. When my doctor recently diagnosed me with Type II diabetes, she signed me up for a diabetes nutrition class at our local hospital. They not only taught me how figure nutritional values for myself but they gave me this invaluable little book called "The CalorieKing Calorie Fat & Carbohydrate Counter". It can be purchased at or This recipe sounds very good and I intend to try it very soon. Thank you Mr. Food Test Kitchen. I love your recipes better than any other web site I have ever tried.

This recipe sounds delishoius. I do like to make my own meatballs because I like my own spices. Yes I do agree that it would be wonderful if you put the nutritional information for every recipe since as a seor citizen I always need to manage my diet. How about it guys. Help us out . I know Mr. Food would agree.

I may make my own meatballs. Wonder if I should mix meats with pork and chuck for these since it is Chinese.

I would even consider making it out of all pork.

If you need to know it you need to learn to figure it for yourself. And that goes for all you people who are constantly wanting to know about calorie counts.

Ok, now tell me how a person is supposed to figure that out if they do not have the ingredients? Most recipes on line post the calorie content as well as other nutrional information.

How many calories are in this meal?

Look on the bag of meatballs. It all depends on what brand you use and how many in your serving. :-)
