SWEET & SOUR MEATBALLS
1 pound lean ground beef
1 cup crushed crackers (I used a combination of saltine and Townhouse)
1 egg, slightly beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons onion, minced
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon oil (I used extra-virgin olive oil)
2/3 cup chili sauce
2/3 cup grape jelly
Mix ground beef with crackers, egg, garlic, onion, milk, salt and pepper. Form mixture into meatballs, approximately 40. Heat oil in frying pan and brown meatballs on all sides. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Heat, stirring occasionally until jelly is melted. Simmer 10 - 12 minutes until sauce has thickened up, basting occasionally.
I decided to take another route with this and put the meatballs in the crockpot after browning. I covered them with the sauce and turned the crockpot on low. I'll serve tonight with seasoned brown rice, a side of steamed broccoli and garlic bread. Mmm!
