Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Recipe from Amber Bahr

This is a recipe from my friend.  If you need something quick it will work in the oven but I suggest using the crockpot.  The flavor is more pronounced in the slow cooker.  You can play around the with the amount of vinegar.  You can half it and still have a good taste with the sauce.  For the barbecue sauce I love Sweet Baby Ray's. In my opinion it is one of the best barbecue sauces out there and I've tried a lot!  If you are short on time frozen meatballs will work just fine.  Works great as an appetizer too if you don't want to put it over the rice.  One last tidbit, for the onion if you don't have any fresh on hand dried onion bits will work.  If I do this I use about half of what is called for.
