These are good, but not my favorite meatballs. The sauce was a little too thin. And like the previous reviewer, I added all the cornstarch to the meatballs. But I added the additional amount to the sauce. My son usually loves meatball dishes, but he only gave this recipe 3 stars. I'm not sure what is missing, but I will experiment with this recipe to see if I can make it more suited to our tastes. Made for PRMR game.

These are very good meatballs. I followed the ingredients per recpe except for: I didn't have any beef broth so I used chicken broth. It wasn't the same as the beef broth but that was my fault. I also made another mistake I added all cornstarch to the milk( I didn't read the directions correctly) The flavor of the meatballs was great but I had trouble getting them to stick together. I found that there was too much liquid. Next time I would adjust the liquid. Made for Please review my recipe.
