"I got this recipe from my mother-in-law shortly after I was married. Now it is a favorite of our kids. I like to serve it over rice."

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine beef, egg, onion, bread crumbs, salt and pepper. Roll into meatballs about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in size.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, saute the meatballs until browned on all sides.
