Tangy Meatballs over Noodles

These moist meatballs are so easy to make, yet they taste so fancy. The sweet and tangy sauce has surprising flavor from ginger and cloves.


8 servings (40 meatballs)


1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup milk
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 (14.75 ounce) cans beef gravy
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 (12 ounce) package egg noodles


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease a baking rack and a 2 1/2-quart baking dish.

In a large bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well. Shape into 1 1/2-inch balls. Place meatballs on a greased rack in a shallow pan.

Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes; drain.

With a slotted spoon, transfer meatballs into prepared baking dish. Combine gravy, brown sugar, vinegar, ginger and cloves; pour over meatballs. Cover and bake 30 minutes longer or until meat is no longer pink. Meanwhile, cook noodles according to package directions; drain. Serve with meatballs.
