Sweet & Sour Meatballs.

IMG_8894

 

Two words to describe this dish:  INSANELY EASY!  If that doesn’t get you… they are also very delicious!  In fact I had extra sauce left and my father implored me to make another batch tomorrow!  Okay… so that’s a winner 🙂

This recipe is easy and very flexible.  You add more or less to impact the sauce flavor.  We like it spicy so I made it spicy.  You can cut that back and make it more on the sweet side. Whatever you want.  Awesome party idea too!

 

Ingredients:

1.25 lbs of ground beef (I used 92% lean)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 egg
1/4 cup of Panko bread crumbs
4 ounces of Sriracha sauce
10 ounces of crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of lemon juice

Directions:

In a stand mixer or mixing bowl combine the meat, garlic & onion powders, egg and bread crumbs.  Scoop with a melon baller and place on a platter.  Repeat until you’ve used up all the meat.

In a saucepan over medium/high heat, add the Sriracha sauce, crushed tomatoes, sugar and lemon juice.  Whisk until combined.  Once it starts to boil, add the meatballs gently and cover.  Turn to low/medium flame and simmer for at least 30 minutes.  I garnished with spring onions.  Could easily prepare ahead of time and keep warm in your crock pot for a party 🙂  Serve & enjoy!

    1. Beverley, Sriracha sauce is a hot chili sauce (similar to Frank’s Red Hot sauce). You can find it in the ethnic part of your grocery store 🙂
