If you are making these, here's a tip. Do not use apple cider vinegar - it's not the same thing as cider vinegar! It'll completely ruin your sauce. I found that out the hard way, had to throw out the sauce plus my house stunk for days. I tried it again with regular vinegar and it was great - I'm sure cider vinegar would be even better.

Good recipe. The meatballs are too plain, though, with only salt and pepper. One should either use seasoned bread crumbs or add some seasoning spices (dried parsley, sage, etc.). I added three more dashes of soy sauce to mellow the sweetness of the sauce.

These sweet and sour meatballs are absolutley great. The sweet and sour sauce is great on chicken wings also. I have made this recipe at least a billion times now and it's a hit with everyone. Absolutley great!!!!!! Believe me you will love this recipe and it's simple. Sometimes instead of making my own meatballs. I just buy the already made meatballs (like Armour meatballs). You just have to put the meatballs in the oven for 30-40 minutes (frozen). Make the sauce while you wait for the meatballs. Then just put the meatballs in the sauce. This is also great with mashed potates. Just sit the meatballs right on top of the mashed potatoes and it'll give your mashed potatoes a great taste.
