These were very good. Exactly what I expected. Sweet and tangy. I will make them again and expirament a bit by using brown sugar instead of white. I did bake them quite a bit longer because I wanted the sauce to get extra thick. Next time I will either use a little more corn starch or a little less water to get the sauce to more of a glaze consistency quicker. My 15mo old loved them as well. I used another meatball recipe from this website so that the meatballs weren't just plain hamburger...
Yummy! Loved how the tops of the meatballs turned golden brown in the oven - I made sure to drench them in sauce every few mintues so the tops didn't dry out. Added just a bit of honey as well to my sauce for added thickness...very good will make again! Thanks!
I will be cooking this for the second time this evening my 3 year old couldn't get enough and she is a infuriatingly picky eater. Only 1 change and I did this the first time: replace the soy sauce with balsamic vinegar.
I'm the writer of this recipe and I just wanted to share that I do mix my meatballs as I would regularly, with onion, garlic, salt/pepper, an egg, and oatmeal. Sorry for the confusion, thanks for the compliments!
I'm glad I read the other reviews as I'm pretty sure it would have been WAY too sweet if I'd put all that sugar in it! I reduced the sugar to 2 tbsp and used dark brown sugar. I subbed flour for cornstarch just because I didn't have any cornstarch and I used apple cider vinegar for "vinegar." I threw Ikea frozen meatballs in it and baked them for about 20 minutes at 450 (although I probably could have done 15 if my oven told me when it was preheated). It was the perfect amount of sauce for 1 bag of Ikea meatballs.:) This recipe was really a great jumping off point though! I think that the soy sauce mustard apple cider vinegar and dark brown sugar really made it. Thanks for the recipe!
Great recipe for sure! I did alter it just a bit though... I followed the other reviews and added about a 1/4 C of brown sugar and that worked great. I used apple cider vinegar and I did add just a little seasoned salt to the meat. Oh and I used buffalo meat instead of ground beef and that worked out great too. I noticed I omitted the salt-- didn't need any I thought! And I did add about 1/2 C of instant wild rice to the meat as well. My 2 1/2 year old son loved them- wanted more! Will definitely make again.:D
My husband and kids could not get enough of this! It was great. I was in a hurry and used frozen meatballs--still turned out great. I also used brown sugar instead of white. Will definately make again.
