Start by making your favorite meatball recipe form the mini meatballs then brown them in a heavy skillet with cooking oil. Once they re brown put them in your crock pot. Mix together in a separate bowl a combination of ingredients starting with beer. Add any or all of the following ingredients to the beer - spicy tomato juice mustard horseradish Worcestershire sauce garlic onion hot sauce red pepper flakes or anything that sounds good to you. Pour this sauce over the meatballs in the crockpot turn the heat to low and let it cook for about 2 hours or a little more until you re sure the meatballs are cooked thoroughly. You won t find these meatballs on just any buffet! Nutty Snacks - I always think some pretty bowls of assorted nuts placed on tables around the room is a nice touch.
In lieu of ordering a full meal a server comes around with a pushcart containing a wide variety of appetizers that you can select from. Typically dim sum includes pork buns pot stickers egg rolls and various types of dumplings that may include shrimp or pork. Some of these gourmet appetizers can be fried or steamed. There is also the option of ordering rice to accompany the appetizers. It is common to drink tea when eating dim sum. Generally dim sum is eaten during lunch or brunch rather than eating a main course from a menu. However many of the same items that are served from the cart can also be ordered if you re ordering an entree from the menu though you may want to select fewer dim sum items in this case. Another very popular appetizer that is often eaten in lieu of a full meal is sushi.
Like dim sum pieces of sushi are another example of bite sized morsels that can be eaten in many varieties rather than a full course meal. Sushi has been traditionally served in Japanese restaurants although in recent years sushi bars (i.e. that serve only sushi and beverages) have become very popular. The ingredients of these gourmet appetizers include prawns and raw tuna wrapped around rice balls and then dipped in soy sauce and horse radish to perk up the flavor of the morsel. At a sushi bar you can typically order sushi rolls that are sliced up into bite sized pieces and individual pieces for as much as you can eat (and afford to spend!). Tea is also the preferred beverage when eating sushi. As with dim sum you can order sushi as a gourmet appetizer preceding a full course meal if eating in a Japanese restaurant.
