Sweet & Sour Meatballs
3 lbs. ground round--add one beaten egg
5 slices crustless bread soaked in milk--squeezed dry to make crumbs
Mix together--add some salt and pepper, then shape into tiny meatballs. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
Small can crushed pineapple
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1/2 clove garlic--minced
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup water
2 tbsp. soy sauce
10 drops tobasco
1/2 cup barbecue sauce (Heinz with onions)
1 tsp. ginger
Cook for 20 minutes.
Make a roux with corn starch (small amount) and add gradually to sauce to thicken. Then add cooked meatballs.
Can be cooked in double boiler so sauce doesn't burn. Same in a chafing dish.
Have plates and forks or tooth picks handy for easy serving.
