  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x9 inch baking dish and set aside.
  2. Form ground beef into 20 meatballs. Brown them on all sides in a large skillet over medium heat, about 15 minutes.
  3. Whisk together the ketchup, cornstarch, water, sugar, vinegar, dry mustard, salt, and soy sauce in a bowl until the sugar is dissolved and the cornstarch is smooth.
  4. Place the browned meatballs in the prepared baking dish, and pour the sauce over them. Bake 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven, until the sauce is thickened and the meatballs are cooked through.

I will be cooking this for the second time this evening, my 3 year old couldn't get enough and she is a infuriatingly picky eater. Only 1 change, and I did this the first time: replace the soy s...

I'm glad I read the other reviews, as I'm pretty sure it would have been WAY too sweet if I'd put all that sugar in it! I reduced the sugar to 2 tbsp and used dark brown sugar. I subbed flour ...

Great recipe for sure! I did alter it just a bit though... I followed the other reviews and added about a 1/4 C of brown sugar and that worked great. I used apple cider vinegar and I did add ju...
