It is a good hot meal to serve the family, it was one my mother-in-law made for her family and my husband loves it.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the ground beef, sasuage, salt, pepper, chili powder, onion, crackers, 1 beaten egg and 1 cup tomato juice.
  2. Shape into balls about the size of walnuts and bake at 350 about 30 minutes, turn and bake about 20 more minutes.
  3. You can drain the drippings off or leave them, sometimes I leave them if there is not too much grease.
  4. Mix remaining juice, cornstarch, a little chile powder and some of the dripping from the pan, I warm the sauce up in the microwave just a little before putting in the hot pan.
  5. Put back in the oven till juice thickens or is good and bubbly.

This recipe was fantastic, though used Vegetable juice instead the tomato juice. Recipe had a nice clean taste to it. Served it with Cracked Pepper Lemon Pasta #103397 February 11, 2005
