Mix the ground beef, pork, egg, water, breadcrumbs, sesame oil and seasonings until evenly distributed. Portion the mixture into 1-ounce meatballs and place onto sheet pan for baking. Bake the meatballs at 350 degrees until the internal temperature reads 160 degrees.
Place all of the ingredients into a stockpot and bring to a boil. Mix the cornstarch and water separately in a small bowl to form slurry. Add slurry to boiling mixture to thicken. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.
Serve meatballs over rice or noodles if desired, topped with the sweet-and-sour sauce. Garnish with sliced green onion and/or sesame seeds. Yields 18 meatballs.
