When I was growing up there was a women’s group called the Willing Workers. They catered events to help raise money for various projects. These meatballs were often served at their dinners.
4 lbs ground beef
2-3 cups fine bread crumbs
3 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon minced garlic or 2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon mustard
Mix above ingredients together and form into 1″ meatballs. Bake in 375 * oven until done about 15 minutes.
Sweet n’ Sour Sauce
This sauce is more like a barbeque sauce I think.
2 cups water
1 cup vinegar
2 cups brown sugar
4 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups ketchup
4 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
Mix in large sauce pan. On medium heat bring to a boil, stirring for 1-2 minutes until thickened. Pour over meatballs. Simmer for 30 minutes – covered. Serve.
- For family dinners I make the meatballs ahead of time and freeze them. On the day of the dinner I place the frozen meatballs in the slow cooker and make the sauce. I then pour the sauce over the meatballs and slow cook for a few hours until it is hot a bubbly.
