Sweet and Sour Meatballs

So let me start off by saying that I can't believe I ever tried this recipe.

Me + hamburger never really got along, well, until I tried these.

These are one of me and my husband's favorites and they are so easy! After purchasing some hamburger, I always have all of the other ingredients on hand.

So yummy!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs
1 lb. ground beef
2 Tbsp. dehydrated onion
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. salt
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup bread crumbs

Sauce:
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 Tbsp. flour
1 1/2 cup water or pineapple juice
1/4 cup vinegar
3 Tbsp. soy sauce

1. In a bowl, combine meatball ingredients. *Shape into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or parchment paper. Place under the broiler in your oven for 5-7 minutes or until the meatballs begin to brown.

2. In a large saucepan, whisk together the sauce ingredients and bring to a boil. Add the meatballs and reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often. Serve over rice.

*Use a cookie scoop if you have one to form the meatballs so they will be the same size and cook evenly.
