Place frozen meatballs on microwave-safe dish. Heat one pound on high for two minutes. Rearrange meatballs and heat on high for one additional minute. (Thawed meatballs heat for 1 ½ minutes). In a saucepan combine reserved pineapple juice, brown sugar, vinegar, soy sauce, cayenne pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper. Bring to a simmer until thick whisking to avoid lumps in the sauce.  When meatballs are cooked add to the sauce to keep warm. Stir to coat with sauce. Turn off heat and set aside.

To assemble sandwiches spoon 4 meatballs with sauce onto gluten-free rolls and place sliced radish, red onion, pineapple chucks and a spoonful of the Asian coleslaw on top.
