APPETIZER BITES: Serve one or 2 meatballs on toothpicks in a cocktail glass with the slaw or on bread and butter plates as a tapas-style course; serve with plum sauce on the side. NOTE: Make the slaw recipe ahead to allow time for flavours to blend. Kids love these brochette-style Beef Bites. You can also make the Beef Bites recipe into burgers and serve with the slaw as a topper.
