These are absolutely delicious. I used ground chicken and ground pork. As one reviewer recommended I added a little ground ginger and a little orange zest. Used 3 lbs. of meat and only doubled the sauce. The ratio of sauce and meat was just about right. The sauce is sooooooo good!

We really enjoyed this! I cut the recipe in half. Goes together in a snap! Omitted the liquid smoke. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Game.

Great! I skipped the liquid smoke...just didn't have any. Used more tomatoes and pasta sauce to make it a bit more saucy for spaghetti. Thanks dave!
