Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Today I am resharing 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.

Thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Sounds tasty!♥ you not brown the meatballs first? Just checking??

    1. That is one step I don't usually do. I have very lean ground beef so there is hardly any fat that comes off the meatballs when cooking and it just saves me time by not having to do it.

  2. I love the concept of sweet and sour anything! Looks good!

  3. This recipe looks amazing. I love going to potlucks and finding a crockpot full of sweet and sour meatballs!

    1. I love this recipe because of the added veggies in the sauce - makes it super delish :)


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading each one so much and will try to get back to each one of you. Have an amazing day!
