Sweet & Sour Meatballs Recipe

June 3, 2016 | Recipes

This recipe was published in my cookbook, “Cooking with Mom”. I got this recipe from a co-worker who made these delicious meatballs for a work lunch. I could not believe that one of the ingredients was chili sauce. Totally blew my mind and I almost didn’t eat any because I was afraid they wouldn’t taste good. Luckily I was very wrong, because they are delicious. I included them in the appetizer section of my cookbook, but they could also be served as an entrée over rice, which is what I do most of the time. Enjoy and feel free to give me feedback once you’ve cooked them yourself.
