My granddaughter is coming for a visit — hooray! So I’m whipping up a batch of these sweet-and-sour meatballs. It has got to be one of the world’s easiest recipes, and it’s yummy. My kids loved it when they were little, and I’m hoping the next generation will too.
1½ lb. lean ground beef
½ tsp. garlic powder
1 bottle chili sauce
1 can whole cranberry sauce
Combine the chili sauce and the cranberry sauce in a large saucepan and heat on a medium flame until the mixture simmers. While it is heating, mix the ground beef, garlic powder and egg. When the sauce is hot, make meatballs the size of walnuts and drop them into the simmering sauce. Stir gently so that all the meatballs are covered with sauce. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for about 45 minutes. Serve over rice or noodles.
