  1. Had some AMAZING chicken teryaki meatballs from Costco awhile back. Can’t even remember the brand. Then we found out our child has celiac and of course the meatballs had gluten. Think I will try this recipe using ground chicken and see if I can get a similar flavor. Here’s hoping! 🙂

    1. I’m sorry, looks like it got left off the directions. I’ve updated but you will combine it with the coconut aminos and other sauce ingredients.

  2. I just made these yesterday. I would say DO NOT put the pineapple in with the hamburger. I believe the enzymes in the pineapple break down the meat and turn it to mush. And 4 lbs of hamburger? That measurement allows for 6 meatballs per pound if you are making 24 meatballs. I think it would be more accurate to use somewhere around 2pounds of meat with the other measurements the same.

    1. Hmmm, that definitely didn’t happen when we made them. I wonder if maybe you made your meatballs smaller than we did. It might explain why you had leftover meat as well. We will definitely cook it again and see if we encounter similar problems to yours. Thanks for the feedback!

  3. Total fail this morning. The meatballs turned to total mush in the oven 🙁 Maybe I maybe them too big or the pineapple wasn’t crushed enough? I still stuck the mush in the crockpot because I didn’t want to waste all that food, no idea what I’ll do with it though.

    1. Oh no Melissa! Sorry to hear that. It looks like a few people are having that problem so we are going to retest the recipe and find out what’s going on. In the meantime, I think you could serve the meat over cauliflower rice and it would be tasty still.

  4. Made these tonight and they are excellent. Used 3 lbs of meat
    and added a tablespoon of coconut flour. Baked on a cooling rack in a shallow pan to drain grease. Held up beautifully. Great recipe!

  5. I’m not sure what some of the other people who cooked this did wrong when they say their meatballs turned to mush in the oven whilst baking but my meatballs head up great. This dish was great with a bed of white rice under it. I do think next time instead of adding chunk pineapple to the sauce I’ll just ad crushed again oh yeah I totally didn’t add the pepper either.
