  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • ¼ tsp. fresh ground pepper
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. coffee crystals
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ c. olive oil

Beer Balls

Bill Cooper

Serves 6-8

Meatballs:

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 egg ½ cup bread crumbs
  • Salt and freshly-ground pepper

Sauce:

  • 1 cup catsup
  • 1 cup beer
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire
  • Salt and pepper

Combine meatball ingredients.  Shape into miniature meatballs and brown in a small amount of shortening.  Drain on paper towels. Boil sauce ingredients for 10 minutes. Pour over meatballs and simmer 3 hours. Serve hot. It’s easy to make up a multiple batch. Freeze meatballs and sauce in separate containers.  Take out only what you might need and simmer at that time.

The recipe is from A Cooking Affaire, Butcher Block Press, PO Box 6, Medicine Lodge, KS67104.
