"Only two ingredients create a great twist on a familiar and favorite appetizer. These are best if they are heated for a while before serving, as the juice will turn into a bit of a glaze."

Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. Combine pork sausage and spicy pork sausage together in a bowl using your hands. Form mixture into meatballs, about 1 tablespoon each.
  2. Fry meatballs in a skillet over medium heat until browned and completely cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
  3. Transfer meatballs to a large bowl and add 1/2 of the orange juice concentrate; gently toss to coat, adding more if needed to completely coat.
  4. Put meatballs in a slow cooker and add the remaining orange juice concentrate; turn on Low setting to keep warm before serving.

Footnotes

  • Variations:
  • Finely chop 2 tablespoons of fresh mint and blend in when adding the juice concentrate.
  • Add 3 tablespoons finely minced red onion. This is also good with the mint.
  • If you really like it spicy, add red pepper flakes to taste.
  • Add 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar and 2 to 3 tablespoons cider vinegar depending upon taste, for more of a sweet and sour flavor.

There is a major problem with this recipe, you just can't stop at eating a couple of these addictive meatballs. I will definitely make these again and per the footnotes add some red pepper flake...

I made it exactly as it reads. Very easy & very tasty.
