These sweet and sour meatballs are my absolute favorite comfort food. It goes back to when my mom would make a version of them for Thanksgiving for me while everyone else was eating turkey. And, then they would all ask for meatballs, too. I did my best to hoard them away, I assure you.
So moist and flavorful, these meatballs are easy enough to make for a weekday dinner, and great for a dinner party. The sweet and sour sauce that goes on top adds the perfect touch of sweet tanginess.
Make 'em, pile them up next to some mashed potatoes (or, in my case, rice and beans) and some veggies, and you'll be a happy gal...or guy...
