Sweet-and-Sour Meatballs


Could it be that the secret to easy cooking is leftover rice? HARRY

1 (1-ounce) package dried onion soup mix
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chili sauce
1/4 cup grape jelly
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup cooked rice

Combine the soup mix and beef into 1-inch balls and set aside. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine the chili sauce, jelly, and lemon juice and cook until blended, about 10 minutes. Add the meatballs, cover, and simmer for 45 minutes. Serve over rice with the remaining sauce.
Makes 2 servings.

    Beef is substituted with Mashed Rajma in most recipes that are made vegetarian – I am guessing I can make these with vegetables especially root vegetables.

    Yes, you can make these with vegetables. You could also make rice balls with the same sweet-and-sour sauce. You’d need a little oil and something to hold them together. Egg would be easiest. Maybe add a little cheese and then fry them. Actually, that sounds so good, I don’t know if you’d want the sauce at all. Chili might be better. Thank you. This opens up all kinds of possibilities.

    Thank you for not using the awful frozen meatballs in your recipe. Those things are so tasteless.

    You can buy frozen meatballs? Yuk! If you make meatballs out of ground beef, it’s bound to be better quality. Then you can add spices and onions and bread crumbs and egg. Pretty soon you’ll have something that’s really tasty. Thanks for commenting
