Beer Balls

Bill Cooper

Serves 6-8


  • 1 lb. ground beef

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

  • 1 egg ½ cup bread crumbs

  • Salt and freshly-ground pepper


  • 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.

Serve with Cooper-Garrod Cabernets
