Doerksen Family Recipes: Scrumptious Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Our family loves to gather in the heart of the home to prepare and enjoy a home cooked meal together. Over the years, we’ve developed quite a collection of recipes. Since launching our line of grass fed beef, to help inspire our home cooks and devoted customers, we’ve decided to share our most popular family recipes.


There’s nothing better than cooking for the family using all natural ingredients! Our meatballs are full of flavour and so simple to make. We recommend preparing a large batch of meatballs at one time, freezing them in smaller portions, and conveniently pulling them out on busy weeknights.

Our Scrumptious Sweet and Sour Meatballs are also great for family parties and Sunday suppers. Pair them with rice or noodles, and you’re all set!
