Sweet and Sour Meatballs

These are crazy good!  So good, I have never actually made a normal batch, I'm always using at least double!  The sauce is a combo of two different recipes, I have found that the flavors go well together and make a fantastic topping!

1/2 cup onion
1lb ground beef
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 egg
2 tablespoons water

1 can jellied cranberry sauce
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup ketchup
1 cup water
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).  In a large bowl, combine beef, egg, bread crumbs, onion, and water.  Roll into meatballs about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in size.
2.  Cook meatballs for 20 to 25 minutes, turning once.
3.  Combine in a crock pot the cranberry sauce, lemon juice, vinegar, ketchup, water, cornstarch, brown sugar, and soy sauce.  Place the meatballs in the crockpot once the come out of the oven, cook for 90 minutes.

I served with:
Jasmine Brown Rice

Jess' Grade: A

I used this at a party and should have made more!  It will go fast, especially if you're doing a pot luck.  Sweet, juicy, and bursting with flavor, I also added some Sriracha and chopped onion to the sauce to kick it up a notch, huge success!  You're going to love these meatballs.
