Let’s get started with our mini meatballs with sweet and sour sauce
Mini Meatballs with Sweet and Sour Sauce

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Shape into balls 1½ -2” meatballs. Preheat large skillet until water droplets bead up and dance around. Place in skillet and brown on all sides. Remove meatballs from skillet drain off any fat. Return meatballs to the skillet and add sauce the sauce, cover with the lid and close the Redi Temp valve. Simmer on medium low heat for 20 minutes. To keep these warm throughout the party put them in a Crockpot on low heat.
- 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar

Directions: 1. In 2 quart saucepan add all the ingredients and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium and simmer until thicken about 20-30. Stir every 5 minutes to make sure sauce doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. The sauce will become thick and the vinegar will lose a little of its bite for a very nice savory balance.
Cotija Lime Corn Salad
- 9 Ears of corn
- 1 Stick of butter
- 6 Tablespoons Mayo
- 4 oz Cotija Cheese (1/2 a brick)
- 4 Tablespoons Lime Juice
- 1/3 Cup Cilantro, diced
- 2 Tablespoons Red Onion, minced
- 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
- 1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder

During the summer you can grill your corn, but since its winter we roasted it in the oven. Preheat oven to 400, take one stick of butter and rub it over each ear of corn. Generously season with salt and pepper. Place in a butter baking dish and roast for 30-45 minutes, turning once at about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.Once the corn is cool enough to touch cut it off the stalk. Combine the corn and the rest of the ingredients in a bowl. Place in the fridge in an air tight container and it will keep for about a week.
