Ingredients

  • 2 pounds Johnsonville Homestyle Meatballs
  • ¼ cup chicken broth

Sauce:

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • teaspoon garlic powder
  • teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ½ cup coconut sugar (or brown sugar)

Slurry:

  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

Garnishes:

  • Diced cherry peppers
  • Chopped peanuts
  • Thinly sliced green onions

Instructions

  • In a large sauce pan over medium low heat, add the frozen meatballs and chicken broth. Cover and let simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Sauce:

  • Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, add the sugar, water, red wine vinegar, garlic powder, onion powder, ginger powder, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Bring to a gentle boil then reduce heat to low.

Slurry:

  • Whisk together the cornstarch and water. Add to the sauce and increase heat to medium. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until sauce starts to thicken. Once thickened remove from heat and set aside.
  • Once the meatballs have cooked for 20 minutes. Add the sauce and gently stir to coat all the meatballs.
  • Either add to serving dish and garnish with cherry peppers, peanuts and green onions and serve. Or serve right in serving dish.

Notes

You can prepare the sauce ahead of time, then mix with the heated meatballs.
Warmed Meatballs and sauce a can added to a slow cooker and kept on warm (or low) to keep heated.
