  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large finely chopped onion
  • 2 stalks finely chopped celery
  • 1 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • for frying canola oil
  • 1 jar sweet & mild grilling sauce
  • 1 small can crushed pineapple


In a small sauté pan, heat olive oil and sauté onions, celery and garlic until onions are translucent. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, milk, breadcrumbs, eggs, onion mixture, salt, curry and pepper. Mix well.

Shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Cover the bottom of a large sauté pan with oil and bring to medium/high heat. Place meatballs (a few at a time) in the pan and cook until just browned on the outside. (Do Not overcook, meatballs will finish cooking in the sauce.) Remove and drain on a paper towel lined baking sheet. Continue working in batches until all meatballs are cooked. In a large sauce pan place the cooked meatballs and pour over the Paula Deen Sweet and Mile Sauce and crushed pineapples. Simmer until heated through. Serve warm.
