Sweat & Sour Meatballs

This recipe is from a lady at church. I made it the other night with ground venison and it was delicious!
It is a pretty easy recipe but there are 3 major steps.
  1. First make the meatballs.
  2. Make the sauce.
  3. Combine both and cook together!
  • 13 oz can evaporated milk
  • 2 cups quick oatmeal
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 3lbs ground meat (I always use venison)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsps salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix everything together in a large bowl.
  3. Shape into balls and place on a foil lined cookie sheet
  4. Bake 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
These meatballs can be used in spaghetti or whatever kind of sauce you like. This time I made sweet & sour sauce!
Sweet & Sour Sauce
  • 1 and 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup vinegar
  • 2 tbls water mixed with 3 tbls corn starch
  1. In a medium pot dissolve sugar and water over medium heat.
  2. Add ketchup and vinegar and bring to a boil for about 5 minutes.
  3. Turn to medium low heat and stir in corn starch water mixture to thicken your sauce. Simmer for 2 minutes.

  1. After sauce and meatballs are made, put meatballs in a casserole dish, add in whatever veggies you like. I added chopped carrots, purple onion, green onion and pineapple.
  2. Pour sauce over them and bake for 25 minutes.
  3. Enjoy!
