Meatballs with Sweet and Sour Sauce

Click to enlargeI was tired of cooking the same old meatballs (or Bola-bola as we Filipinos call it) so I decided to make a sweet and sour sauce to go along with it. Thanks to my mom who readily texted to me the recipe for the sauce in minutes. :-)

Meatballs:
Ground pork (500 grams)
1 egg, beaten
1 onion, minced
1 tomato, minced
1 tsp cornstarch
salt and pepper to taste

Sauce:
White vinegar
Water
Ketchup
Sugar
A pinch of salt
Cornstarch

1. In a bowl, mix well all ingredients together for the meatballs. Leave for 30 minutes before frying. Form meat mixture into balls and fry in oil. Set aside.
2. In another bowl, mix well all ingredients for the sauce. (Sorry, I don’t have exact measurements for the ingredients. Test taste na lang and adjust accordingly).
3. Heat 1 tsp oil in a saucepan and pour in sauce mixture. For more flavor, you can saute garlic and/or onions prior to adding the sauce. Stir constantly until sauce boils. As the sauce is boiling, continue to stir but more vigorusly this time until sauce thickens.
4. Add meatballs into the sauce or pour sauce on top of meatballs. Serve hot.
