This is a modification of recipes from Jean Pare’s Company’s Coming: Appetizers cookbook. Once again, I change it to suit my purposes.
1 lb. lean ground beef
1/3 c. quinoa flakes (or quick cooking rolled oats or bread crumbs)
2 tbsp. low sodium soy sauce (or regular soy sauce)
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp rum extract
Mix all together and form into 1″ meatballs. Bake in the oven, uncovered, at 375 F for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, make the sauce…
Sweet and Sour Sauce
1 c. white sugar
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 c. vinegar
1 1/2 c. water
Combine dry ingredients and stir to mix. Combine liquid and add gradually to dry, stirring. Heat to boiling, until the mixture turns translucent and thickens. Remove from heat.
Serve with steamed broccoli and brown rice. 🙂
