Better than my best meatball recipe! I did make my own meatballs, but the sauce was out of this world! Thanks a bunch.
What could be easier; this is really tasty too. I had a jar of apricot and pineapple preserves so left out the chunk...served over pasta. ThX for posting. Made for CameraLess Chefs.
This is actually my go to meatball recipe. People love it too. I have been using it for years and can't believe I forgot to review it...I use sweet baby rays bbq sauce. the meatballs always seem to disappear :)
We thought this was good. My kids ate it, and although my 3 yo son is super picky, he ate nearly the whole serving I put on his plate. I did leave out the brown sugar, and didn't miss it. Between the BBQ sauce and the sweet preserves, it was plenty sweet for us. If I wasn't serving it to my kids, I'd love to put in some cayenne or hot curry powder. We will make it again!
I thought this was going to be ridiculously sweet...however, the original spice Jack Daniels bbq sauce really provided a nice lingering heat. I served over basmati rice. The whole family enjoyed these meatballs. SO SIMPLE!
Wow! I took other reviewers' advice and cut back on the BBQ a little bit. I also didn't have apricot preserves, so I used Strawberry. Oh my holy immortal God this was GREAT!! I needed something quick after our plans to eat out fell through. This was a hit! I hate pineapple and I still licked my plate clean, pineapple and all. I also halved the recipe and eyeballed the BBQ sauce and strawberry preserves. I tasted the sauce as I went because I didn't want it to be too overpowering. Thanks for the great keeper!
This was very enjoyable. DH and DS thought the sauce was a bit much after awhile. I only used one bottle of BBQ sauce instead of 2. We served this with rice. I'll be making this again! Wish I'd had this recipe last week for a potluck.
I tried this and loved it... and I think the person that gave it 2 stars did something wrong, cause it is delicious! And if a whole group of people ate it and keep requesting it, doesn't that tell you something?
I'm sorry to rain on the 5-star parade, but I thought this was just okay. I followed the recipe to a "T" and we just werent crazy about it. I served it as a main dish and maybe that was the problem. I will say that it was very easy to put together and the sauce could be easily halved using the same amount of meatballs. I would encourage others to try it because maybe it just wasnt our cup of tea but is appealing to the masses.
