Tangy Meatballs

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

A friend gave me this recipe many years ago. It came from some cooking contest and was printed in a newspaper. The sauce is sweet and tangy and works well with plain rice. The meatballs have a lot of extra ingredients that really aren't necessary so one could use their own meatball recipe for this dish. The foil in the pan is just for easy clean up. A nice salad and some good bread would make this a quick and easy meal. The cook time is figuring that you are simmering the sauce while the meat balls are baking.
