Sweet ‘n’ Sour Meatballs

Just made it for dinner tonight and it was really good! After the last step of topping the meatballs with the sauce I covered it with aluminum foil and placed it in the oven for 30 minutes and the meatballs were really tender! Had brown rice with it to complete the meal. Great recipe!

I've made these meatballs for years for family and friends. I made them for a patient holiday event a few years ago. They were a huge success. So simple and tasty.

I made this for a Women's event at my church and everyone loved it. This is probably one of the best Appetizer Dishes I have ever made.
