Apple Cider for supper

I love apple cider. I also really love what it does to a sauce… the longer it simmers, it becomes thick and bubbly and caramel-y. Once that sauce is poured over the meat with the onions and apples, it just oozes into every crevice of the meatballs. I served this with my Autumnal Orzo and the flavors were perfect together. If you’re looking for something different to serve this weekend while the weather is glum and blustery, this may be your answer!

Apple Horseradish Meatballs

  • 1 small apple (diced)… the firmer the apple, the better
  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • 1 1/2 pounds meatballs (turkey or beef)
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 Tbsp. fresh horseradish
  • 1 cup fresh apple cider
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
Melt the butter in a saute pan and add the onions and apples. Saute until the onion is soft and then add the horseradish and soy sauce. Simmer for 1 minute… the soy sauce should  bubble energetically. Slowly whisk in the cider and the water and bring to a boil. Reduce the sauce by half. Add in the meatballs and stir to coat them with the sauce. Serve with orzo.
