Sweet and Sour Meatballs


  • Ready Time : 0 min


4 Servings


  • 2 pounds chopped meat
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (minced)
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs or wheat germ
  • garlic powder
  • 2 whole eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup


  • 16 ounce cranberry sauce
  • 1/2 can tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water


In a large pot, put all ingredients for sauce and heat through on low flame. In a large mixing bowl, mix meat with rest of ingredients and shape into small meat balls. Put into pot with sauce, adding more water if needed. Cover and cook on low flame 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Flash freeze meat balls separately from sauce; store in Freezer Mates, or VentnServe for ease in individual removal.  Read my tips for freezing food here.

  1. Please tell me where I can get your cookbooks in the Jerusalem area.


  2. I love your website, I hope I can continue receiving the recipes.

  3. There is no kosher cranberry sauce. What is a good replacement?

    • If you can’t find kosher cranberry sauce you can make your own from fresh or frozen cranberries.

    For meatballs I do freeze with sauce but I do it flat in a freezer ziploc. To use only what I need, I leave it on the counter for a few minutes, ‘snap off’ the number of meatballs with the sauce attached and put the rest back in the freezer.

    • Those of us who use Tupperware freezer containers SAVE over $1000-1200 a year in foil AND baggies! PLUS we have NO freezer burn ever!
