  8. Drain any grease from the skillet.
  9. For the Sweet and Spicy Sauce:
  10. In a small bowl or measuring cup combine all of your sauce ingredients except the water and cornstarch.
  11. When the meatballs are cooked through place your skillet back on the stove over medium heat and remove the meatballs from the skillet and set on a paper towel lined plate and drain off any grease in your skillet.
  12. Pour your sauce mix in the skillet heat over medium low heat.
  13. Meanwhile, combine the cornstarch and water in a small bowl and pour in the skillet while stirring continuously. When the sauce begins to thicken add the meatballs back to the skillet and allow it to cook over low for 3-4 minutes so they are coated and soak up that delicious flavor!
