Kaia's Sweet & Sour Porcupine Meatballs in a Broccoli Forest
Serves: 4 (3 meatballs each)
Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
1 T. olive oil
1/4 c. onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (14 oz.) can tomato sauce
1 tomato, diced
1 T. brown sugar
1 T. apple cider vinegar
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
2 T. olive oil
1 lb. ground turkey
1/2 uncooked Uncle Ben's white rice
1/4 c. onion, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
1/2 c. water
1 head broccoli, cut into florets
For the sauce heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook 3 to 5 minutes before stirring in remaining ingredients. Crank heat up until sauce is simmering, reduce to a low simmer and cook until slightly reduced and thickened about 15 to 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
In the meantime combine ingredients for the meatballs in a large bowl. Using hands mix gently and form into rounds about the size of a golf ball. Heat oil in a separate large non-stick skillet over medium and cook meatballs until golden about 3 minutes per side.
Transfer meatballs to sauce, coating the meatballs, cover and continue to simmer on low until tender and flavors have melded about another 10 minutes.
While both sauce and meatballs are about to be ready simply steam the broccoli just until tender about 5 to 7 minutes.
