Meatballs with Sweet and Sour Sauce


Put half the meat through a coarse mincer and the remainder through a fine one. Finely chop the onion. Mix the minced meat and onion with the rest of the meat ball ingredients. Form into long sausage shapes and roll in flour. Slice into approximately 2 oz pieces and roll into balls. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and fry meatballs until golden brown-about 5 mins. Drain and place on a warm serving dish. Pour most of the fat from the pan and stir in the sauce ingredients. Simmer the sauce until smooth and golden.

Make a batter, the consistency of thick cream with flour and Guinness. Wash the mushrooms, dry them, toss them in flour, and dip them in the batter. Fry them in shallow fat to make fritters.
