Recipe by Scutch

If you like sweet & sour meatballs but don't like all the fuss of making balls, you will love this dish. It is very easy and quick to put together. This is one of our favorite weekday meals, served over rice.

This was very easy to fix and had a good taste. Like the other reviewer, I would add some veggies to it. Also, I think it would be good with a little bit of ginger in the sauce.
