Sweet and Sour dish — particularly sweet and sour pork is a Cantonese dish that was introduced by Chinese migrants to the West in the early part of 20th Century. Since then, it evolved into variety of dishes with the same basic ingredients — sweet and sour sauce. Some are prepared with chicken and some are prepared with seafood such as fish and shrimp; sweet and sour meatballs dish is just another twist.
Preparing sweet and sour meatballs is very simple and don’t let the long list of ingredients and procedure scare you. I only organized it in a way where you can serve it quickly right after cooking. There are two different methods of cooking the meatballs. You can deep fry them or bake them—just like what I did here. By the way, this is also a good appetizer for your next party. Just cook the meatballs and serve them with sweet and sour sauce without the veggies.
