Cocktail Meatballs

June 16

I’ve made these for as long as I can remember, so simple and fun! It’s meatballs covered in a rich sweet & sticky sauce and they always go down a treat while entertaining.

Method
  1. Preheat the grill to high.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the minced beef, onion, green pepper, breadcrumbs, egg and Tabasco sauce until thoroughly mixed together.
  3. Form the mixture into bite-sized meatballs, each about 3cm (1/4 in) in diameter. Arrange the meatballs on a grill tray and place under the hot grill for 10-12 minutes, turn from time to time, until browned all over.
  4. To make the sauce, melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium-high heat, add the onion and pepper and sauté until soft. Add the remaining ingredients and bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
  5. Arrange the meatballs on a serving platter and cover with the sauce, then pass around and enjoy.
