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 :)
I prepared exactly as written. I just wish I could give it more stars.
Next time I might try adding some pineapple, red onion, green and yellow bell peppers carrots, etc. Definitely not necessary tho.
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
My husband had made up his own recipe of sweet and sour and we loved it so we were hesitant to try something new. We are glad we did!!! We make this EXACTLY like the recipe except I put in a good quality frozen meatball instead of making my own(omit ingredients for meatballs if you use frozen) and make the sauce just like it says and then we put it all in the crockpot on high for several hours. I am sure it is delicious with the homemade meatballs too, but I used the frozen to save on time. They are delicious! Everyone loves them. Even my daughter who is picky about sweet and sour. Try it! It is a keeper for us.
