Expert Tips

  • Plum sauce is a thick sweet-and-sour sauce made form plums, apricots and sugar. Also called duck sauce, it's commonly served with duck, as well as with pork and spareribs. Hoisin is a sweet-spicy sauce made from soybeans, garlic and chilies. Look for the sauces in the Asian food section of the supermarket.
  • Try this sauce over frozen cooked meatballs instead of over homemade ones. Combine one 1-pound package of frozen meatballs and the sauce in a slow cooker; set it on Low and heat them for 4 to 5 hours.
  • To easily shape uniform meatballs, first divide the meat mixture into 36 equal 1-tablespoon portions. Moisten your hands and roll each portion into a smooth ball.
