You've gotta try these! The flavor of the lil' smokies gets into the meatballs and the sauce is divine - nicely sweet with a little spice from the chili sauce (not hot). Omit the horseradish if you don't like any heat. You can make these in the crockpot, the oven, or an electric skillet.
This was translated from braille from my mom's recipe collection (after she passed away). She loved Norwegian meatballs! My grandmother was Norwegian and my grandfather was Swedish, so there was a real blending of cultures. She called these Norwegian meatballs, but maybe they are Swedish? Who's to say?!
I usually multiply the quantities and make a whole bunch of these tasty "bullets". They freeze well and come in handy when I have no time to cook or unexpected company drops by. They would, shaped a little smaller, make a great finger food at a cocktail party. You could make them ahead and reheat them.
Makes a large batch, perfect for freezing. I have used mixed ground meats in this recipe: Italian sausage, veal, pork, lamb or a bit of everything...what ever I have in the freezer. Always start off with half ground beef.
This combination of ingredients produces a very nice, light meatball that you can cook immediately, but the secret of its fluffy texture is in waiting. Believe this was from an original Heloise tip of many years ago.
I searched thru 3 pages of Sweet & Sour Meatball recipes to make sure this was unique and I think it is. I got this recipe from a lovely woman named Iola back in 1973. It is still a favorite and requested by friends and family alike. You can use your own meatball recipe, or if you're like me...I sometimes run out of time and I use frozen already prepared meatballs.
This was sent to me by a friend that knows I'm interested in Polish recipes. It is her great-aunt's recipe and is absolutely delicious. As with many Polish recipes, it isn't low-fat, but it is worth every calorie,
The stroganoff recipe is easy and very tasty whether you use beef or meatballs. The original recipe called for top sirloin cut into cubes and sauteed until browned. I have changed this dish to make with meatballs. Since my stepkids readily eat meatballs. The sauce is simple with a wonderful flavor. I usually serve this over buttered parsley egg noodles.
