I got this recipe from my sister many years ago. My family & friends really enjoy them. I like making these for family night along with rice and a nice salad or cheesey asparagus.

How to Make Bea's Sweet & Sour Meatballs


  1. Mix first 4 ingredients together & shape into balls. (Adding a little onion powder, parsley and garlic powder never hurts. I do that often). Pan fry until brown on all sides. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Place meatballs into baking dish. Combine last 4 ingredients & pour over meatballs. Cover & bake at 375 for approximately 45 minutes to one hour. I normally get around 15 golf ball-size meatballs.
