I always love an easy recipe for a main dish that can be thrown together in one pot. This sweet and sour recipe fits the bill. I got it years ago from a co-worker, and it kind of got lost in my recipe book. I discovered it a few months ago and whipped it up. It was a bit hit with my family! sweet-and-sour, ground-beef-recipe
It is great for busy nights, because it is easy to keep warm or re-heat if your family is running all different directions. It also makes great leftovers the next day. Hooray for easy meals! If you like sweet and sour meatballs, you should give this a try. It has similar flavor, but is much quicker to make. 🙂
