An instant hit at your table. Juicy, tender cocktail meatballs added to our Pineapple Buffalo sweet and sour sauce, we just know your taste buds will thank you, and your guests won’t stop at one!

Make the meatballs from scratch OR if you’re pressed for time, buy plain, frozen ready-made meatballs and add them into the 4-ingredient sauce.

(Don’t use seasoned meatballs as they may clash with the flavours in the sauce. Garlic meatballs are fine to use.)

How do you make the meatballs?

This meatball recipe is easy to make and with minimal ingredients. Just like most meatball recipes, you’re going to combine lean ground beef (mince), onion, Saucy Cow Ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and breadcrumbs.

Use a small cookie scoop (approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons capacity) to scoop the mix out and roll into balls.

Bake them in the oven for about 25 minutes until they’re cooked, then throw them into Pineapple Buffalo sweet and sour sauce for the most irresistible meatballs.

The sauce

The sauce itself is so easy to prepare, with ingredients we bet you already have or can get your hands on in a flash:

  • Cranberry sauce (not whole cranberry sauce).
  • Saucy Cow Pineapple Buffalo sauce
  • Brown sugar — light or dark.
  • White vinegar, apple cider vinegar or fresh squeezed lemon juice.

FOUR ingredients for one of the best sauces you’ll try.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Like a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the beef, eggs, Saucy Cow ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, breadcrumbs, and onion. Use a small cookie scoop (1 1/2 tablespoon capacity) to roll into small meatballs. (Arrange onto prepared baking sheet as you go.)
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, turning once while cooking.
  4. While meatballs are cooking, combine the sauce ingredients in a large skillet or a slow cooker on low heat. Stir to blend, then add the meatballs. Simmer for 1 hour before serving.
