      I had mixed reviews from my diners; everything from stellar to average fare. I adapted this to prepare in the crockpot so my changes might be responsible. We made the meatballs and somehow missed the instructions the onions were supposed to be a part of the meat mixture. The meatballs were carefully placed in a single layer in the crockpot and we added a chopped onion and chopped red bell pepper on top, followed by the seasonings and only TWO cups of broth. After cooking the liquid was very thin so I thickened with a cornstarch slurry to end up with a sauce to serve with asian rice and steamed veggies. If I were to make this again I would increase the spices in the meatballs (& add the onion). However the mildness was one diners favorite aspect of the recipe. Made for Fall 2012 Pick A Chef.
