The meatballs in general here in Germany have different names, such as Klopse.

This traditional dish here in Germany is named after a dish from the East Prussian Konigsberg (now Kaliningrad). Although there are many controversial opinions from where it really originates. The recipe dates back to the 18th century and was widespread throughout the Great Prussia up to the Baltic States. They were called just meatballs or Klops. Only at the end of the 20th century, it was announced the addition of Königsberg. Traditionally it was used well beaten thin meat until the meat grinder was invented.

Typical for this delicious traditional German dish is the sweet and sour sauce with capers and the meatballs are stewed.

First mix the minced meat with 1 egg, diced onion, diced caper, 1 bun, salt, pepper and sweet paprika.
