Mix the meat and the rest of the meatball ingredients lightly, working it as little as possible to get it thoroughly mixed. Shape into 16 meatballs. Place on a foil lined broiler pan and make the sauce.
For the sauce, melt the butter in a skillet. Saute the onion until it is softening. Add the coriander, ginger and cayenne and stir it in until the onion is fully tender. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring constantly for a couple of minutes. Remove from the heat.
Place the meatballs under a preheated broiler 4 inches from the heat. Broil for 3 minutes. Brush on the sauce and continue broiling for 3 minutes. Turn the meatballs and brush more sauce on. Broil for 3 or 4 more minutes, until cooked through.
You may also brown the meatballs in a skillet, then add them to the sauce in its skillet. I do this when I double or triple the sauce. Once browned, I simmer them, stirring often, until they are done.
This is good served with rice or pasta.

Put the first set of ingredients in a mixing bowl and make a well in the center. Don't mix them up yet, they will be more tender if you keep the mixing to a minimum. Put the second set of ingredients in the well and let the liquids soak into the bread crumbs.
Now mix it all up with a spoon, using your hands only at the end, to make sure it is mixed thoroughly.
Using a tablespoon at a time, form into balls. Handle as briefly as possible. I use a meatball maker that makes 6 at a time, very handly.
On medium high heat brown on all sides. Reduce heat and cook through, or finish cooking in a sauce, soup, or stew.

I am looking for a recipe that was on the back of the Heinz 57 bottle in the 80s. You made meatballs with Parmesan cheese. The sauce was Heinz 57, canned tomatoes, and sugar. You served it over noodles. Can someone help?
By Mary Jo H
I looked for the recipe and have not found it as yet but here is one that could be used for meat balls instead of roast.
the link is http://www.hein px?recipeID=0015
57 Sauce Great American Meat Loaf
1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk
1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 egg slightly beaten
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup Heinz® 57® Sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Combine ingredients thoroughly. Shape into a loaf (8 inches x 4 inches) and place in shallow baking pan. Bake in 350-degree oven for 1 hour. Allow meat loaf to stand 5 minutes before slicing. Serve meat loaf with additional 57 Sauce, if desired.
Cook time: 1 hour
I found one @ "about.com" called 'sauced meatballs'. It sounds like this is the one you might be looking for. Hope this is it?!
I went back to the site and copy/pasted...again hope this is 'the one' :-)
1 pound ground beef5 (ground chuck recommended for flavor)
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese6
1/2 cup seasoned dry fine bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup minced sweet onions7
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt8
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper9, or to taste
2 tablespoons shortening or vegetable oil
2 (14-ounce) cans diced tomatoes10
1/2 cup Heinz 57 Sauce
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon flour
Hot buttered noodles or rice, if serving as an entree
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish
Using a large serving fork, combine ground beef11, Parmesan cheese12, bread crumbs, milk, sweet onions13, egg, salt14, and pepper15. Using 1 rounded tablespoon for each, roll ground beef mixture into about 30 meatballs.
In a bowl, mix together canned tomatoes16, Heinz 57 Sauce, brown sugar, and salt until combined. Set aside.
Heat a large, deep skillet over medium heat. Add shortening or oil and brown meatballs on all sides. Drain fat. Sprinkle with flour and gently stir meatballs to coat. Proceed with the sauce.
Preheat oven to 450 F. Line a jellyroll pan with a Silpat17, non-stick foil, or parchment paper. Line up the meatballs, placing them 1 inch apart. Bake for 15 minutes. Transfer to a heavy, deep skillet over medium heat and sprinkle with the flour. Stir to coat. Proceed with the sauce.
Pour tomato mixture over meatballs. Simmer uncovered 20 to 30 minutes or until sauce18 thickens to your liking. Stir several times as it cooks to prevent sticking and encourage even cooking.
Serve meatballs with sauce over hot buttered noodles19 or rice and sprinkle with chopped parsley. Sauced meatballs may also be used as an appetizer20 (a crockpot21 works well to keep them warm) or in meatball sandwiches22 topped with cheese23.
Yield: 6 to 8 servings in about 3 cups of sauce as a main dish (about 30 meatballs)

I need some help with spices. In this mushroom meatball recipe, the gravy is great, and the meatballs are good, but kind of bland. I don't want them to be spicy as in hot, just more flavorful. What herbs/spices would you add to the meatballs? I will probably try any and all suggestions since I make this a lot. Exact measurements would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Here is the recipe:
Mix all but soup, milk, and water. Shape into meatballs, place in single layer in sprayed 9 X 13 inch pan. Stir soup, milk, and water together until smooth. Pour over meatballs, cover tightly and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Serve gravy over rice or mashed potatoes.
NOTE: For more gravy, use 2 cans of soup, 1 soup can each of milk and water.

Some spices you can use for the meatballs, but not necessarily together. A little experimenting would do nicely.
Allspice, Basil, Marjoram, Paprika(tends to be a little hot if too much is used), Oregano, Italian spice mix. Diced garlic, Worchester sauce and ketchup are also a great add in for meatballs. If using ketchup cut the amount of liquid by however much ketchup you add.
Sometime I use thyme or poultry seasoning. They both go well with meatballs and mushroom soup and add a lot of flavor.
One of my favorites is Summer Savory - a herb that adds great flavor to many recipes. It's hard to find in stores, so you can order it from Penzey's. Use about one-half teaspoon for 1 to 1 1/2 pounds of meat. I like to break it down a little further than it is when you get it, by pressing and rubbing with the back of a spoon, especially the larger pieces (stems). Summer savory gives things a wonderful flavor and goes really well with chicken.
I am looking for a corned beef recipe. I'm not sure what it's called, but the meal was corned beef meatballs with rice. There was a cheesy horseradish sauce to pour on top.

My husband is allergic to Parmesan cheese. Most of the meatballs in the freezer section have Parmesan. I make my own meatballs. I buy ground beef and ground pork mixing 2/3 beef to 1/3 pork - sometimes I use the Italian seasoned pork, sometimes plain. I add seasoned breadcrumbs, a little garlic powder and an egg. Mix well. Shape into balls. Bake in a 350 degrees F oven about 20 minutes.
When cool, place in large ziplock and freeze. When ready for dinner, remove enough for dinner right into the sauce. Slow cook till thawed and finally hot. Pour over pasta and enjoy. Dinner is usually done in less than 1/2 hour.

Mix all ingredients in bowl. Then pack into meatballs. In large frying pan, brown some garlic with olive oil. Then brown the meatballs in pan.
In large pot, pour can of tomatoes and one can of water. Brown more garlic in olive oil then add to pot(brown garlic in separate skillet.) then add to large pot along with pork chop for flavor.
In large skillet, brown more garlic, add 2 cans tomato paste, 1 can water, 1 Tbsp. parsley, 1/2 Tbsp. sugar and 3 bay leaves. Simmer to a boil then add to large pot.
In same frying pan, brown more garlic with olive oil, saute sliced mushrooms and roma tomatoes then add to large pot. Cook on low or medium for at least four hours, the longer the better! Stirring and scraping edges occasionally and adding Merlot. Never add oregano, onions or peppers, only garlic. Other spices cover up natural flavors. Bon Appetit!

Your recipe sounds great. I'm anxious to try it. When I make meatballs, I always make them about the size of a ping pong ball and cook them in a foil lined jellyroll pan at 350 degrees F. It doesn't take that long to cook them and if you're going to add them to a sauce, they'll get some additional cooking there. (10/12/2007)
