      I didn't get the desired effect when I tried this recipe. I think it's important that the beef be really really ground up; you can't just use the ground beef that you find in the store; you need to take that and then grind it up even more! My result ended up tasting like a slightly fancier boiled pork meatball. I think simmering for 1 hour tends to overcook it. Maybe one needs to use really really low heat. I'll have to try again.
