How to make Coca-Cola Meatballs

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 180 degrees C or 350 degrees F. Using cooking spray, grease a 20 x 30 cm or 8 x 12-inch oven dish.

Step 2: Place the beef, bread crumbs, egg, water, half of the chopped onion, half of the Green Bell Pepper (if using), and a half each of salt & black pepper in a large mixing bowl. Mix well. Shape the mixture into balls and place it on the prepared oven dish in a single layer.

Step 3: Combine the rest of the onion, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Then, add the garlic along with the tomato sauce, coca-cola, Worcestershire Sauce, and green bell pepper. Mix well until incorporated, then pour this on top of the meatballs.

Step 4: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 50 to 60 minutes, turning the meatballs twice, until the sauce is bubbly and the meatballs are cooked through.
