    everydaychef's Note:

    I love this technique for creating a smooth sauce that the kids really love. Meatballs could be made with pork mince or minced chicken for variation.

      Yes, extremely good, moist delicious meatballs in a flavoursome sauce, my daughters friend stayed for supper which ensured that there were no left overs, much to DHs disappointment. Another time, I would allow the meatballs to chill in the fridge for half an hour, some of them did break up a bit when cooking, but the taste was marvellous. I used apple cider vinegar, since I hadn't realised that I was out of malt vinegar. I didn't blend the sauce, because I do prefer as more chunky sauce, it certainly didn't affect the taste. A very good recipe, equally good for weekends or during the week, will be making again, thanks, everydaychef!
