Why I Love This Recipe

Serve these over rice as a main course, or offer as an hors d'oeuvre.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup plain dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup minced celery
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1-ounce package dry onion soup mix
1 12-ounce bottle home-style chili sauce
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup tarragon vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar


Combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, celery, parsley, egg and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in medium bowl. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons soup mix; blend well.

Using moistened hands, form mixture into 1-inch-diameter balls and place on sheet of foil.

Combine chili sauce, 3/4 cup water, raisins, vinegar, sugar and remaining soup mix in heavy large pot.

Bring to simmer over medium-low heat.

Drop meatballs into sauce.

Cover pot and simmer until meatballs are cooked through and sauce thickens, stirring occasionally, about 30 minutes.
