The base recipe is great--for an even greater dish, saute minced garlic, minced onion, and minced bell pepper before adding the chili sauce and grape jelly. Add sriracha (Thai hot sauce) and rice wine or white vinegar (I added both) in a small amount. Cook together to blend flavors. I also added cooked carrot puree, cooked butternut squash puree, and cooked cauliflower puree because husband doesn't eat vegetables. Undetectable! I added ketchup to the meat mixture before making meatballs and substituted onion powder for chopped onions (unless you saute the onions first, they will never get hot enough to become soft). I baked the meatballs and added to the sauce in the pan--picky husband loved. I have been looking for a great sweet and sour sauce for ages. This is it.
