Loved this sauce with the meatballs. SO easy to make and went great over rice! Made for the Hot Pink Panthers, ZWT9.

Yummy sauce! I made a double recipe of this sauce to serve over Köttbullar (Swedish Meatballs, Ikea Style). I made as written except that I added some Mrs. Dash seasoning, to taste for a little added flavor. Also, I added the sauce to the meatballs instead of serving on the side. This recipe goes together very quickly and easily and complemented the meatballs very well. Thank you for sharing! *Made for ZWT6 Xtra Hot Dishes*

This was definitely a good base recipe. I added chopped onions and garlic, which added a bit more flavor. I tasted the mix near the end of the simmering time, before I added the salt, and I thought it was plenty salty already. Thanks for posting! I was looking for a stroganoff-esque recipe that didn't call for sour cream as I'm out.
