Sweet and Sassy Cocktail Meatballs

Dirty Girls Do the Superbowl: Part IV (Balls of Fury)

Hold on to your panties, ladies – this one is a party favorite. This is the Superbowl appetizer equivalent of the “Fast and the Furious.” 1) They are easy 2) there is something for everyone to drool over 3) they are in high demand, so you better find a good hiding place if you want those leftovers (and, trust me, you do!)

Sweet and Sassy, Cock and Balls, Batman! This one is good!

Batman has nothing to do with this – or balls for that matter. These balls are waaaaaaaay sexier than Batman, unless we’re referring to the Christian Bale Batman. Now that’s a pair of meatballs I could sink my teeth into.

Ouch! That sounds painful!

Not for meeeeeeee! Its all about the part-eeeeeee! With extra sauce. Enjoy!

Sweet and Sassy Cocktail Meatballs

3 lbs. of ground beef
1 lb. of ground pork
4 cl. of garlic, minced
1 tbs. of fresh oregano, chopped
1/2 tsp. of paprika
1 tsp. of jalapeno hot sauce (we like Adobo Loco)
1/2 tsp. of black pepper
4 tsp. of salt
1 large onion, finely chopped
1/2 c. of bread crumbs (or panko crumbs)
2 eggs
2 tsp. of Worcestershire sauce

1 small bottle (14 oz.) of ketchup
1/4 cup of deli mustard
1/2 c. of brown sugar
1/4 c. of red wine vinegar
1/2 c. of apple cider vinegar
4 c. of brown gravy
4 tbs. of worcestershire sauce
2 cloves of garlic, minced

Preheat oven to broil.

Add pork, beef, garlic, oregano, pepper, salt, half of the onion and worchestershire sauce to a large bowl and mix well.  Mix in egg and bread crumbs and set aside.  Wash hands well and then wet them thoroughly.  Scoop out about 2-3 heaping tablespoons into your hand and roll into a ball.  Place on a foil lined cookie sheet.

Pop the meatballs into the oven and broil for 5-7 minutes on each side, until each side is browned, taking care not to set your balls ablaze.

Add all of the sauce ingredients and the other half of the chopped onion to a crockpot and turn to high.  Allow meatballs to simmer in the sauce for at least an hour.  If you let them cook longer, turn the crockpot to low after the first hour and let it babysit itself.  Serve with sticks for skewering.

  1. Mmmmmm, love! And in other news, I cannot access your blog from work. Apparently, the filters think that "dirty girl" refers to something besides some badass kitchen cookin'.
