salt and ground black pepper to taste
Very Good taste. My husband said that it was superb. I did put some onion into my meat mixture. This is going to be a regular in my kitchen. Thanks
I made this for Christmas it was a Big Hit Thank You!!! :-) the only things I did different were~~ I put finely grated onion, garlic, parmesan-romano cheese and a package of real bacon bits in to the meat mixture and used 1 lb ground chuck and 1 lb of ground pork sausage. The sauce I didn't change at all it was incredible people were dipping into it even after the meat balls were gone!!!
I used Italian breadcrumbs rather than just the bread, and I added garlic powder to the meatballs. Certainly, you could add whatever you like in your meatballs. I like the sauce, and especially appreciate that it calls for ingredients I keep on hand.
I made this sauce, it was delicious!! It had just the right balance of sweet and sour. The meatball recipe looked a little bland, so I used my own. I added steak spice, seasoning salt, italian bread crumbs and 2 eggs to my ground beef, the meatballs got rave reviews :)
Delicious. My husband said they were the best he ever had. Which is good because I've never made sweet and sour meatballs! Only minor changes I made were to add chopped onions to the meat mixture, used less water with the eggs, and used bread crumbs instead of bread. Adjust the brown sugar based on how sweet you like things. I used a little less
