this is GOOD. didnt use currant but the rest is great
This looks like an ordinary dish but the flavoring gives it a pleasantly surprising bit of interest. I had only 1# of meat and no currants (not even raisins, somehow!), but used the same amount of the spices and thought the flavor was just right--this made I think 22 meatballs. I did not have the orange rind for the sauce. I do not have a crockpot: I browned the meatballs in a large skillet and then poured the sauce over and let it simmer. I actually then put it in the fridge for a day or two and then re-simmered for a while before serving. The meatballs were sturdy enough not to fall apart but did not dry out or get chewy. I added some sliced carrot to the sauce and served it over barley couscous. It was very filling, very warming, and decent from a health perspective as well.
