A friend from church gave me this recipe. It's one of my all time favorites.


  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup soft bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/4 pound bulk pork sausage
  • 1/4 pound ground beef
  • SAUCE:
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • Hot cooked noodles or rice


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Crumble meat over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1-1/2-in. balls.
  2. Place meatballs on a greased rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 13-15 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°; drain.
  3. In a large skillet, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar and soy sauce; add the meatballs. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 8-10 minutes or until heated through and sauce is thickened. Serve with noodles or rice.
