Sweet and Mild Meatball Appetizers
By Paula DeenJUMP TO RECIPE
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 1 lb ground pork
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 1 cup dry breadcrumbs
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 large finely chopped onion
- 2 stalks finely chopped celery
- 1 cloves minced garlic
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons curry powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- for frying canola oil
- 1 jar sweet & mild grilling sauce
- 1 small can crushed pineapple
In a small sauté pan, heat olive oil and sauté onions, celery and garlic until onions are translucent. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, milk, breadcrumbs, eggs, onion mixture, salt, curry and pepper. Mix well.
Shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Cover the bottom of a large sauté pan with oil and bring to medium/high heat. Place meatballs (a few at a time) in the pan and cook until just browned on the outside. (Do Not overcook, meatballs will finish cooking in the sauce.) Remove and drain on a paper towel lined baking sheet. Continue working in batches until all meatballs are cooked. In a large sauce pan place the cooked meatballs and pour over the Paula Deen Sweet and Mile Sauce and crushed pineapples. Simmer until heated through. Serve warm.
