really good meatballs, September 18, 2006 - 12:18 PM
Reviewer: Linda M. from Rockford, IL USA
I love regular sauerbraten where a roast is marinated for a couple days in a marinade with lots of ingredients & then a whole afternoon is spent cooking the roast. The sauerbraten meatballs have a taste that is similar to regular sauerbraten but can be prepared in a relatively short time with just a few ingredients. It's a great recipe for what to do with yet another package of ground beef. And it's different...not the same old thing. One downside...after eating the meatballs, my hubby always complains that he ate too much!
