Sweet and Sour Meatballs

This is one of my favorite Sweet & Sour Meatball recipes.
Not only is it super tasty and colorful I also love the smell of it cooking.

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 cup oatmeal
2 Tbsp. minced, dried onion
1 Tbsp. parsley flakes
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp/ pepper

Mix together and shape into meatballs.  Place in roasting pan.

Sweet 'n Sour Sauce
2 cups brown sugar, packed
2 tsp. flour
1/2 cup vinegar
1/3 cup water
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
2 Tbsp. ketchup
1 can crushed pineapple (including juice)
sliced pepper strips, red and green

Mix sauce together and pour over meatballs.

Cook in 350F oven for 1 hour or until thoroughly cooked.

I like to serve this with rice, steamed broccoli and a tossed salad.

  1. Dear Alana,

  2. Thanks....now I want meatballs! lol

    WILL try this, sounds amazing!
    (Does it matter if the oats are quick cooking or no?)

  3. Laura - I hope your family enjoys them as much as my family does.

    Blondee - I always use quick-cooking oats but I don't think it would make much of a difference which type you use.
