Apricot-Curry Meatballs

This is an amazing combination of flavors that makes the perfect dinner, or a bite-sized appy!


Combine the indigents for the meatballs, then shape into about 36 balls. Wet your hands with cold water to prevent the meat from sticking to your hands as you’re trying to roll the balls. Partially bake the meatballs for 20 minutes.

Once the sauce is mixed up, pour into a Dutch oven or other heavy bottom pot (you can use a casserole dish and finish the cooking in the oven rather than the stove top if desired). Place the partially cooked meatballs in the sauce, cover and simmer.

For the last 5 minutes of cooking, remove the cover to allow the sauce to reduce and thicken.ApricotCurryMeatballs6
