Here is one of my very favorite meatball recipes. I use it at Passover time, using the matzah meal. I make them year round, and they work really nice for Shabbos dinners when you need a meat appetizer or even a main course(served over rice). Boiled Sweet and Sour Meatballs 3 Eggs 3 lbs Ground Beef (many times I mix grd beef & grd turkey) Bread/Bread Crumbs or matzah meal -- equivalent of 1 piece of bread per lb of meat 1/2 tsp each: garlic powder, onion powder and pepper To make: Wet bread (if using bread and not crumbs or matzah meal), mix the bread or the crumbs/meal in with the meat, eggs and spices. Mix well. Shape meat into meatballs -- not too small as they boil down a bit. Boil water (1/2 fill a large pot with water). Drop meatballs into boiling water. Boil for 20-30 minutes. Skim fat off the top. Add the following: 2 - 16 oz cans tomato sauce 1/2 to 1 C brown sugar 1/4 to 1/2 C White sugar 3-7 Tablespoons grape jelly 4 Tablespoons lemon juice Gently boil until meatballs are done -- about 20 mins.
