Sweet and Sour Meatballs – Vol. 3, recipe 1

Welcome, month of March! Today we made sweet and sour meatballs from (wait for it) – Christmas Cookery! This recipe is part of the “Trim the Tree” dinner. We made it with a sweetandsourmeatballscombo of ground pork and beef, instead of the beef only in the recipe. The sauce is basically brown gravy with vinegar, brown sugar, and soy sauce. Pickled pearl onions, added at the end of cooking, definitely take the whole thing in a new direction when you get a chunk into the mix. I think this is the original idea behind the recipe now often made with ketchup. This is both less sweet and less tangy, although you could add more brown sugar and vinegar to taste.
