Not a bite was left of these sweet and tangy meatballs, so I call that a success!
1 pound lean ground beef
2 TBS water
1/2 cup bread crumbs
3 tablespoons minced onion
1 (8 oz.) can jellied cranberry sauce
3/4 cup chili sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 1/2 TSP lemon juice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, egg, water, bread crumbs, and minced onion. Roll into small meatballs.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, turning once.
In a slow cooker or large saucepan over low heat, blend the cranberry sauce, chili sauce, brown sugar, and lemon juice. Add meatballs, and simmer for 1 hour before serving.
****Please note - I got all my meatballs to come out evenly by using a dough scoop from Pampered Chef. Email me if you don't have one, and want another way to make all your meatballs the same size.
