sweet & sour meatballs


I decided to try out another new recipe last night.  This time it comes from this site.

Sweet and Sour Meatballs

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef

3/4 cup quick oats

2 eggs, slightly beaten

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Form into about 12 balls, each about 2 inches in diameter. Place in a casserole dish. Cover with sauce (below). Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. Serve over rice.


1 cup brown sugar

1/2cup apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoon mustard

1/2 cup barbeque sauce

2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Combine ingredients and blend thoroughly. Heat in a small saucepan until combined and sugar is dissolved and pour over meatballs.

We really enjoyed this because it was different than most things I normally make.  We both ate til we were stuffed, I took some to a friend, and we still have leftovers.  You may try halving the recipe if only serving two people.  I will next time.  And next time I will definitely follow the directions to "finely chop" the onion.  My onion pieces were too big.  Oh, and make sure I have plenty of rice.  I didn't cook enough.
