Sweet and Spicy Sausage Balls
This is one of my favorite recipes handed down from my mother in-law.
- Serves: 100 persons
- 2pounds bulk hot Italian sausage
- ½cup red wine vinegar
- ½cup ketchup
- ½cup brown sugar
- 1tablespoon soy sauce
- ½teaspoon ground ginger
Step 1Roll sausage into 100 very small balls using no more than 1 1/2 teaspoons meat per ball.
Step 2Stir red wine vinegar, ketchup, brown sugar, soy sauce, and ground ginger together in a large saucepan over medium heat; bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and cook at a simmer until beginning to thicken, about 15 minutes.
Step 3Heat a skillet over medium heat. Fry sausage balls in batches in the hot skillet until browned on all sides and no longer pink in the center, 3 to 5 minutes per batch. Remove cooked sausage balls with a slotted spoon to the saucepan and stir into the sauce to coat.
