Tangy Sweet and Sour Meatballs
Source: Second Helpings, Please!

Nothing could be easier - or better!

1 1/2 lb. minced meat
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg
2 tbsp. matzo meal
1 1/2 cups ketchup
2 cups ginger ale

Combine first 6 ingredients and form into small balls. Combine ketchup and ginger ale in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Drop meatballs into sauce, cover and simmer for 2 hours.

Yield: 6 servings as an appetizer, 4 servings as a main course.

Cooking Tips from Norene:

To shape meatballs easily, wet your hands for easier handling.

When mixing ingredients together for ground meat mixture, don't overmix or meatballs will be tough.

Meatballs freeze beautifully. I like to store them in single serving-size freezer containers. Smaller containers defrost more quickly than larger ones.
