Belgian Meatballs (Boulets à la Liégeoise)

1 hour plus chilling

Meatballs from French-speaking Belgium are known as boulets à la liégeoise. They're generously sized and savory-sweet thanks to a sauce made with sirop de Liège, a dark, thick, spreadable fruit juice concentrate. To mimic the syrup's fruity sweetness, we used prunes plumped in beef stock, then pureed in a blender until smooth. Traditionally, the meatballs are served with crisp pommes frites, but roasted potatoes are an easier endeavor at home, and a simply dressed bitter greens salad alongside balances the sweetness of the sauce.
