Recipe from Stevia In The Raw®
2 slices sandwich bread, crusts removed
1 pound ground beef (90% lean)
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 large egg
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups jelled cranberry sauce
1 cup tomato puree
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1/2 cup grape juice
3 packets Stevia In The Raw®
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Bake meatballs 10 minutes, turn and bake 10 minutes longer, until firm and no longer pink in center.
Meanwhile, in large, deep saucepan, combine cranberry sauce, tomato puree, tomato paste, grape juice, Stevia In The Raw, garlic powder, allspice, and cloves. Bring to gentle boil, reduce heat, and simmer, breaking up cranberry sauce with wooden spoon to help it dissolve. Cook until sauce thickens slightly, 10 minutes. Add meatballs and cook 5 minutes longer.
Serve immediately, or cool and refrigerate, tightly covered, up to 2 days. Reheat in foil-covered baking dish in 350 degrees F oven for 30 minutes.
