    Last night I made my grandmother’s sweet and sour meatball recipe. It’s so good. My mom always makes it as an appetizer for holiday meals. But I decided to make a meatball sandwich. Yummy!!

    I love homemade sweet and sour sauce. I put it on fried eggs with fully cooked yolks.

    The sauce is really good. The one I made is not the Asian style (like on sweet and sour pork). The recipe is an old Eastern European recipe. How do you make yours?  The one I make is made with green pepper, onion, tomato purée, lemon juice, brown sugar, oregano, garlic, water, and raisins.

    I tend to follow Chinese recipes, but I doctor them up a bit. I started with this: https://www.adailyfood.com/chinese-egg-fried-with-sweet-sour-sauce/  But tend to add more vinegar, less starch and I use a normal 12" fry pan. If I have black vinegar on hand I love to add that.

    Creative. Meatballs pre-made? Crock pot? 
    I just had empenadas with ground beef and raisins hidden in there. Added a unique sweetness I'd never think to use.

    Nope. Meatballs were not premade. No crockpot. It only takes about an hour total in a regular pot. I mixed the ground beef with an egg and breadcrumbs. The sauce takes a while to get the right balance. First it was a bit too sour so I added more brown sugar. Then it was too sweet so I added more tomato purée and water and a bit more lemon juice and so on until I got it right. I have been eating this since I was a kid so I know how it is supposed to taste so I was aiming for that. But anyone else could stop adjusting when they liked the taste.

    That’s Chilean empanadas ground meat mix with hard boiled eggs & raisins! Did you bake or fry the empanadas? We only fry empanadas when we fill them with cheese & shrimp or cheese and quince jam

    Love perogies. We have a few diners in my neighborhood that make great perogies.

    Stuffed zucchini with ground beef onions garlic and spinach! I blanched the zucchini to soften up to carve out the middle and incorporate that in with the meat filling topped with Parmesan cheese! Bake for another 30 minutes to brown the cheese

    Nice work. No need to sear? I seared my pork but the sugar in the rub burned a bit.

    Tonight I made a recipe called Egg roll Skillet. It is basically the inside of the egg roll without the deep fried wrapper. I used ground turkey instead of pork to lighten it up a bit. It came out pretty good. But definitely felt like it was missing something. I have a jar of King Pao sauce in my fridge. Maybe I will add that when I heat up the leftovers. But overall it was good. Lots of ginger and garlic.
