“A family recipe (from my mother-in-law) for a unique twist on traditional meatballs. These are baked in a wonderful tomato-based sweet and sour sauce, which is delicious over rice! I doubled the original sauce recipe. We love extra sauce, and this recipe will make a lot.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix the ground beef, eggs, bread crumbs, onion, milk, salt, and black pepper together in a large mixing bowl until evenly combined. Form the mixture into 12 large meatballs. Arrange the meatballs into a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  3. Stir the ketchup, tomato sauce, water, brown sugar, white sugar, Worcestershire sauce, Italian seasoning, and chili powder together in a saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until well combined and hot, about 5 minutes. Pour the tomato sauce mixture over the meatballs in the baking dish. Turn the meatballs to coat in the sauce.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the meatballs are cooked through and no longer pink in the center, 60 to 90 minutes.

Absolutely delicious!! The sauce was to die for. I didn't have enough ketchup so I substituted a cup of the ketchup for Lucille's Original BBQ sauce. It was fabulous! Thank you for this wonderful recipe - we loved it. This sauce would make a fantastic glaze on a meatloaf too - going to give THAT a shot!

Just tried this and we love it - didn't change a thing - the meat balls were nice and tender - my meat balls must have been smaller - theyvtook a half hour at 350 filing this under YUM! thx

Holy cow these are a huge hit in my house!! The only thing I did different was I browned the meatballs in a frying pan with a bit of olive oil. It was very easy to make and I tripled the recipe!! Had everyone over for dinner. I had sauteed spinach on the side for a complete dinner. Yummmm!
