Original recipe yields 10 appetizer servings



  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Mix together ground beef, chestnuts, soy sauce, brown sugar, onion powder, and garlic powder thoroughly in a large bowl. Form the mixture into 2 tablespoon-sized balls, and place onto a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until no longer pink in the center, about 15 minutes. Stir together the apricot preserves and the cider vinegar, toss with meatballs in a clean bowl, then return to baking sheet, and bake for an additional 5 minutes.

These meatballs were a hit at my Luau themed baby shower! I added a little soy sauce to the apricot glaze. I just loved the crunchy addition of the chopped waterchestnuts. Even my picky husband liked them.



My family liked the recipe as directed. I added some chili sauce to half of it and it was great like that too.

These were just okay for us. There wasn't enough sauce to really even coat them so I doubled the recipe, but we still didn't love them. With so many great meatball recipes, this isn't one that I'm likely to repeat. Sorry!
