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.
Although I didn't use lean ground beef, I didn't have many drippings left in the skillet. I followed the directions, but, didn't care for the taste. My husband thought the meatballs were good, but, that they needed a great deal more seasonings than were listed in the recipe. I will try this one again with a different beer and some Season-All.
