I am not sure whether you like Chinese sweet sour meatball or not,
I love it. It is always one of my favourite dishes in our family New Year food
The meatballs are fried to golden brown and they taste great even without the sweet sour sauce. The combination of sweet and sour gives the meatballs another lovely special flavour.
I used to watch my mum making this at home during every Chinese New Year festival. So here is my version of Chinese sweet sour meatball, which I made when I joined this Chinese New Year food party with my Chinese colleagues. You can see it is not difficult to make it by yourself.

This dish has a better version, like my mother usually does in home. Instead of boiling, she would fry some sliced ginger and leek first, then add the cold sweet sour mixture in it, stir till it is thickened. I may try my mum’s version in the future.
