Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Recipe by Elephant.Shoes

Delicious! My mom has made them ever since I can remember--passed down from my gramma. Not too sour and not to sweet, they sure hit the spot!

I borrowed the sauce recipe for some left over meatballs; it was so yummy and fast. I mixed all the ingredients in a saucepan (including a dash or two of garlic powder) cooked it until thick and tossed in the meatballs. Thank you for sharing! :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl mix together the beef, pepper, salt, egg, onion, and oatmeal. Once combined roll meat into about 1 inch balls and fry until brown, then set off to the side to let rest.
  2. In a sauce pan add ingredients and keep stirring at a medium-high heat until mixture dissolves.
  3. Once sauce is dissolved, put cooked meat balls into a baking dish and pour sweet and sour sauce on top. Cover with lid and bake in the oven at 350°F for 30 minutes.
  4. when its all done, the sauce will have thickened nicely. Eat on a bed of rice with some sesame seeds on top, and Voila!
