These all sound good and I like your Polynesian Beef Balls too, LBM. Here is my super easy meatball recipe.......these freeze well too. I take what I need from the freezer and put into my sauce. As the sauce heats through, the meatballs defrost and heat as well.

Italian Meatballs

1 lb. ground beef, 85% lean

1/4 cup onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/3 cup parmesan cheese, grated

2/3 cup bread crumbs

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp. Italian seasoning

1 tablespoon parsley

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

Heat oven to 350 degrees. With your hands, combine all ingredients in a bowl. Form into balls using rounded tablespoons. Place meatballs in a 9 x 13" pan. Bake 20-25 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce. Makes about 18.

Made the porcupine meatball recipe not too long ago, but didn't know what to serve as a side. Seems that I made some mashed potatoes to go with them. The meatball recipe I make the most was one of Mary Beth Roe's recipes that she made on the air decades ago when they sold T-Fal.

I don't follow a real recipe - just add all the ingredients, form into balls and bake 350 for about 25 minutes.

For about 1 1/2 lbs of hamburg I add about a cup of ground pepperoni and mix.

Then I add about 1/2 jar spaghetti sauce, some grated parmesan, a good bit of Italian seasoning and enough seasoned bread crumbs to form the meatballs.

I make mine like you do but don't use fresh onion. I learned from my son-in-law who makes awesome meatballs to use dehydrated minced onions. They really make a difference & no onion to chop. Smile The only other difference would be the size. I make BIG meatballs, would never get 18 out of a pound of meat.

Bob Bowersox Szechuan Meatballs

from 1996 (accessed on Archive.org)

.

Szechuan Meatballs

.

3 ounces blanched almonds, coarsely chopped

1 pound ground beef

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1 clove garlic, crushed or minced

1/2 large green pepper, seeded and fairly finely chopped

dash of Szechuan or Tabasco sauce

(more if you want them really hot)

flour

.

Sauce

.

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1/2 cup beef stock or broth

1 tablespoon white wine vinegar

2 teaspoons honey

1 tablespoon sherry

1 tablespoon cornstarch

4 green onions, chopped on the diagonal into 1/4" to 1/2" pieces

hot cooked rice

.

In a large bowl, combine the chopped almonds, the meat, ginger, garlic, green pepper, hot sauce and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Use a wooden spoon or your hands, and blend the ingredients well. Divide the meat mixture into 16 meatballs. Lightly flour each by rolling it in a bowl of flour.

.

Either deep fry the meatballs in a unit like the Tefal Safety Deep Fryer, or heat a little oil in a large frying pan and cook the meatballs over low heat until cooked through.

.

In a small saucepan, cook 3 tablespoons soy sauce, the stock and the vinegar. Bring to a boil for 30 seconds. Add the honey and stir until dissolved. Blend the sherry and cornstarch and add to the hot sauce. Cook until thickened, stirring all the time.

.

Arrange the meatballs on a serving platter, nestled on top of hot, cooked rice. Sprinkle with the green onions. Pour the sauce over the meatballs and serve.
