Sweet & Sour Meatballs

I've been meaning to post this recipe forever.

Because it's really and truly delicious.

{and easy.}

{and i love sweet and sour.}

6-8 servings

  • 1 egg
  • 1 envelope dry onion soup mix
  • 1 tsp. garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 2/3 C. Italian seasoned bread crumbs {or plain breadcrumbs w/ some italian seasoning mixed in}
  • 3/4 C. evaporated milk

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine egg, soup mix, garlic, and pepper. Mash in ground beef and bread crumbs with a fork. Stir in evaporated milk {mixture will be well-moistened}. Roll into approx. 24 golf-ball-size meatballs and place in nonstick-sprayed 9x13 baking dish so meatballs do not touch. Cover with foil or glass lid, bake for 28-35 minutes.

Sweet and Sour Sauce
2-3 servings

  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar {add another if you like your sauce sweeter like i do}
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons tomato ketchup
  • 1/3 C. rice vinegar or white vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. soy sauce
  • 2 tsp cornstarch, dissolved in 5 tsp water
Combine sugar, ketchup, vinegar, and soy sauce in a bowl and whisk. Pour into saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Pour in the cornstarch mixture and keep stirring until the mixture thickens up. Pour into bowl and serve!

We put the meatballs over rice, mixed in some big chunks of pineapple [mmmmm...drool.}, green peppers, and carrots, and poured the sauce over the top. I love this recipe because I usually have most of the ingredients already on hand!

So. Good
