Sweet and Sour Meatballs

It's been an incredibly busy holiday season for us, especially being baby's first Christmas! I got caught up trying to make everything perfect, particularly because I believe that it is important to uphold traditions with the little one around. Jory definitely got spoiled this Christmas by all of his aunties and uncles...he is one lucky boy!

I had meant to blog many times but then got sidetracked with something or another. I got this recipe from my friend C, who is the author of the blog, Kitchen Slave. She had recently hosted a housewarming at her house and these meatballs were one of the dishes that was on her menu. Since I noticed that she had not included the recipe to this dish on her blog, she personally forwarded me her recipe for this. I think it's a great little appetizer dish!


3 lbs. Ground Beef
1 tbsp. Oregano
1 tbsp. Basil
1 tbsp. Ground Coriander
2 tsp. Salt
1 tbsp. Pepper
1 tbsp. Chili Powder
1/2 Cup Breadcrumbs
1 Cup Panko Breadcrumbs
1/4 Cup Milk
2 Eggs

1 bottle Barbecue Sauce
1 jar Grape Jam
1/3 Cup Honey
2 tbsp. Sriracha Hot Sauce
2 tsp. Ground Coriander
2 tsp. Chili Powder
2 tsp. Garlic Powder


In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, oregano, basil, ground coriander, salt, pepper and chili powder.

In a small bowl, soak the breadcrumbs and panko breadcrumbs in the milk until it's wet but not too soggy, then add eggs and mix. Add to meat mixture and mix until everything is incorporated.

Be careful not to handle too much or they will become tough.

Form into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes.

In a large pot, pour in all sauce ingredients. Cook over medium heat. Taste and adjust seasoning to your preference.

Add cooked meatballs to the pot, coating the meatballs with the sauce.

When meatballs are coated and hot, they are ready to be served!
