1 1/2 pound ground beef
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
1 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon salt
black pepper


1 cup brown sugar
1 onion, diced
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
3 cloves
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/2 cup vinegar
1 cup hot ketchup
1/2 cup HP sauce


Meatballs: Shape into balls. Roll in flour. Cook 10 minutes to brown.

Sauce: Mix and pour over meatballs.

This is not the recipe that your grandma made but they are VERY good. If you are not Canadian or British, you might not know that HP Sauce is. It's a steak / meat sauce somewhat like A1 sauce. You could probably sub any steak sauce but I think that the HP sauce gives the meatballs a very unique flavor.

the meatballs are fantastic - the sauce not so much. Too spicy - I've been adding water to the sauce so it doesn't overpower those delicious meatballs!
