Sweet and Sour Meatballs

These meatballs could actually be used in any meatball-needing-recipe {ie spaghetti and meatballs?}, but they are extra good with this sweet and sour sauce.  Pretty easy to assemble, too.  They can also be made for appetizers for entertaining, just serve with little toothpick.

{What you need}
1 pound ground beef {or turkey!}
2 tablespoons dehydrated onion
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup bread crumbs

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
1/2 cups water or pineapple juice
1/4 cup white vinegar
3 tablespoons soy sauce

In a medium bowl, combine meatball ingredients.  Use a cookie scoop to shape meet into 1-inch balls and place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.  Place under the broiler in your oven for 5-7 minutes or until the meatballs begin to brown.  

In a large saucepan, whisk together the sauce ingredients and bring to a boil.  Add the meatballs and reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often.
