Man! Were these good! I deep-fried the meatballs in a basket and made the sauce separately using bacon grease (healthy, huh?) in a skillet. And, well you know me by now, I skipped the salt and used low sodium ketchup and Worcestershire. And what beer did I use? ... Guinness, of course! Printed and into the Favourite Recipe binder it goes.
