I will post the recipe at naptime...but here is what lunch looked like yesterday. I doubled up the sauce since the kids like sauce. It's not thick though but yummy all over rice.

Those are canned ones. I bought them at the commissary but they can also be found at Asian Markets and some regular grocery stores too. I have found fresh ones here in Az, but they are like 6 or 7bucks a pound sometimes in the summer. When I lived in Hawaii one of the civilians in my unit would bring me fresh ones from his home. He was like my favorite person when I was pregnant over there. I heard you can grow the trees here in AZ which I am thinking about looking into how much care. Oh I need to post that recipe

This recipe is from The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook. I got this book on another site for SS type swap.

Ingredients:
1 can 14oz Lychee cut in 1/2 lengthwise
1 to2 Tbs of oil
1 red bell pepper cut into 1" pieces
1 green bell pepper cut into 1" pieces

Ingredients for Sweet & Sour sauce:
1/4 C juice from canned Lychee
1/4C white viengar
3 Tbsbrown sugar
2tsp grated fresh ginger
1/4C ketchup
1/4 salt

Ingredients for meatballs:
1 lb ground pork (I used beef since that is what was in fridge)
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbs flour

Bring all the ingredients in Sweet &sour sauce to a boil and let simmer on low heat for 5 minutes.

In a bowl combine ingredients to make meatballs. Mix well should be thick and sticky. If not add 1 tsp more of flour. Make meatballs about 1 -1/2 inches. Keep them uniform in size so they will cook evenly.
In large cooking pan add oil to a medium high heat. Fry meatballs for about 2 minutes browning all sides. Middles will not be done.
Add peppers, lychees and pour in the sweet and sour sauce. Cover with tight fitting lid. Let simmer over low heat for 4-5 minutes.(Until meatballs are cooked)

****If using ground turkey or chicken cut off about 1-2 minutes of simmer time so you don't over cook the meatballs.

Other variations that was suggested was pineapple, longan or rambutan.


I don't think I have tried longan.. I might have to look for that. I also doubled the sauce and added the extra at the end.

Commissary usually has them canned. Asian MArket you can find canned and sometimes fresh. Since you live in the south you might even be able to find them in TX at some grocery's stores. I found them at Fry's before. I know the grow in Hawaii, FL and a few other places in the states.
