Tangy Meatballs

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by DDW7976

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.

Really enjoyed this recipe! The sauce was very tasty and not too sweet. I am going to make it again for the Christmas holidays--know that everyone will like it. Thanks for taking the time to post this.
