How do you thicken sweet and sour meatball sauce?
If the sauce isn’t thick enough, you can add one more tablespoon of cornstarch and whisk it in. But remember, the sauce will thicken even more as it cools down. So only add more cornstarch if the sauce is way too thin. Store in a sealed jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

What is the best way to Brown meatballs?
Baking. Browning in the oven at high heat is neater than frying and, if you’re making meatballs in quantity, both faster and easier than skillet searing. Baking them on a rack set over a baking pan ensures even cooking, and using your oven’s convection setting (if you have one) yields nicely browned surfaces.
