Sweet and Sour Meatballs

from Cooking Country Style

I use this sweet and sour sauce for ribs as well.


2 lbs meatballs


½ cup vinegar

½ cup ketchup

1 onion, chopped

½ teaspoon chili powder

½ teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

¾ cups water 

2 tablespoons cornstarch

Preheat oven to 350F.  Place meatballs in a roaster or baking dish.  In saucepan, cook brown sugar, vinegar, ketchup, onion, chili powder, salt and Worcestershire sauce.  Stir cornstarch in water and add to sauce.  Pour over meatballs.  Cover and bake for 1 to 1 ½ hours.
