Sweet and Sour Meatballs

These meatballs are terrific appetizers. They work well for parties or for a dish to take. My family enjoys them at home as a special holiday treat!


2 pounds ground beef or chuck
2 eggs
3/4 cups seasoned bread crumbs
1 onion, chopped, sauteed
salt and pepper to taste

Ingredients for Sauce:

1 bottle chile sauce
1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
1 can beer


Chop and lightly sautee the onion in a small amount of oil or butter. Plan to use the same pan for the meatballs. A large non-stick fry pan or covered skillet works well.

Combine chopped beef with bread crumbs, sauteed onion, and salt and pepper. Mix well. Form into small meatballs according to your preference. Brown the meatballs in the skillet (use oil if needed to prevent sticking). Pour off any fat.

Combine all sauce ingredients. Heat the sauce, add the meatballs, and simmer covered for 1/2 hour. I use a large, covered, non-stick skillet and use the same pan for the entire procedure.

Serve and enjoy!!
