This doesn't sound nearly as good as it is. We serve this with creamed potatoes and a salad. everyone begs for this dish. Its so simple I don't know why we don't fix it more often.

Made these for my husband and father-in-law, and we loved them. Much better than the other barbecued meatball recipe I tried, and I will make these again and again. Thanks!!

Excellent recipe! I made it per recipe instructions and served with mashed potatoes. Second night we made sandwiches.

What Margie says is exactly right: "This doesn't sound nearly as good as it is"! The meatballs were tender and delicious, and the sauce is so tasty for such simple ingredients. I simmered the meatballs in the sauce for about 45 minutes but otherwise didn't change a single thing in this recipe. Served with rice (to soak up the sauce) and steamed broccoli. This goes into my cookbook for another easy weeknight meal. Thanks, Margie!
