Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Sweet and Sour Meatballs
  • 4Servings


  • 2 pound chopped meat
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (minced)
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs or wheat germ
  • garlic powder
  • 2 whole eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup


  • 16 ounce cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 can tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water


In a large pot, put all ingredients for sauce and heat through on low flame. In a large mixing bowl, mix meat with rest of ingredients and shape into small meat balls. Put into pot with sauce, adding more water if needed. Cover and cook on low flame 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Flash freeze meat balls separately from sauce; store in Freezer Mates, or VentnServe for ease in individual removal.  Read my tips for freezing food here.
