Always Perfect Sweet and Sour Meatballs

1 lb ground beef
garlic powder
onion powder
1 egg
1/4 cup matzo meal
12 ounces chili sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup lemon juice
Mix together beef, garlic powder, onion powder, egg, and matzo meal.
Form into small balls and set aside.
Pour chili sauce into medium saucepan.
Refill bottle with water, shake well, and add to pot.
Add the brown sugar and lemon juice, and mix.
Bring sauce to a boil.
Taste and adjust amounts of lemon juice and brown sugar to taste.
Drop in meatballs.
Return to boil, cover, and simmer for at least 20 minutes (but you can leave it on for much longer if you forget).
VARIATION #1:For chili sauce, you can substitute either tomato sauce or tomato juice or diced canned tomatoes, and adjust the sweeteners and water accordingly. You just want it to be a saucy consistency, not too thick or thin. If you use plain tomato juice or sauce, you can add in some garlic powder or other seasonings. The sky is the limit. But, do NOT use spaghetti sauce!
VARIATION #2: For matzo meal, you can substitute bread crumbs, oatmeal, a little flour, or any other binding agent.
VARIATION #3: For brown sugar, you can substitute real maple syrup, sugar, honey, grape jelly, or any other real sweetener. (Do not use Nutri-sweet or any other artificial sweetener!).
