Sweet & Sour Meatballs

Makes 35 meatballs


1 1/2 lbs of lean ground beef

1/2 cup crushed crackers

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp garlic salt

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Black pepper

2/3 cup water

1 cup sugar

1/3 cup vinegar

1/3 cup of ketchup

2 tbsp cornstarch



Step 1: Preheat the oven to 350 F. Mix together the meat, crackers, egg, pepper, garlic salt and Worcestershire sauce. Make small balls with your hands and place on a baking sheet.

Step 2: Place meatballs in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven, place meatballs on paper towel to remove excess fat and grease.

Step 3: To make the sauce, combine the water, sugar, vinegar and ketchup together in a sauce pot, bring to a light boil. Stir frequently to dissolve the sugar. In a small bowl, add the cornstarch to 1/3 cup of water, mix well. Whisk this into the sauce and let thicken.
