You want to make this mandarin meatballs recipe! Believe me. You do. It's so easy and my picky kids and not so picky husband were asking for more. Did I mention that I made up this recipe when looking through my freezer and pantry? Did I mention that it's totally yum?
Prep Time: 10-15 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Chop the onion and pepper. Put it in a large skillet (Chicken fryer size, Very large and deep) with the butter over medium high heat.
Let it cook and begin to caramelize for a few minutes. Meanwhile begin making the sauce.
Whisk together all sauce ingredients in a separate bowl.
Add frozen meatballs to the skillet and let them begin to brown a little. Five minutes or so is sufficient. Don't worry if they're not warmed through, yet.
Add the mandarin oranges and the sauce. Cover and reduce heat to low/medium. Let it simmer for 30 minutes.
Cook some white rice while you wait. Prepare yourself for the praise you'll receive!
Serve over rice with plenty of sauce. Enjoy, my friends!
