MrDave's Sweetballs

, , ,


12 oz of Ground Beef
1 package of Apple & Cinnamon Instant Oatmeal
1 Tbl Ketsup or Tomato Paste
1 Tbl Steak Sauce

1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 medium onion finely chopped (about 1 cup)


  • Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl until everything is uniformly blended together.
  • Form 1.5 inch balls of the mix and place on a microwave-safe plate.
  • Microwave 2 mins. Re-arrange balls.
  • Cook 2 more mins. Drain plate. Re-arrange balls.
  • Cook 1-2 mins as needed.
    Balls may be served with sauce, cheeese, made into a sandwich or just eaten as is.


Makes about 10 balls.

Using the Tomato Paste and Worchestershire is healthier than the Ketchup and Steak Sauce. Ketchup and Steak Sauce have high-fructose corn syrup in them.

I find that leaner meat means you don’t have to cook them as much. 93% lean cooks in less time than 80% lean. If may need to drain your plate after the first microwaving. I find that the meat-juice goes well into homemade tomato sauce.
