In a medium bowl, combine egg, bread crumbs , cilantro, garlic, red pepper and salt. Add peanuts and beef. Mix well. Shape into 1" meatballs. Place in shallow baking dish and bake for 20 minutes at 350 or until no longer pink. Remove from oven and drain. (To make ahead, cool meatballs then chill for up to 48 hours.) Put one meatball and one pineapple chunk on skewer and return to baking dish.
(I just dump them in the baking dish, as I put them all in a serving bowl.) Brush with sweet & sour sauce. (I just dump the sauce on and toss.) Bake for 5 to 8 minutes more. (Bake chilled meatballs for 10 minutes.) Heat remaining sauce and serve with meatballs.
