Wonderful! I made these for Shabbat dinner with noodles and a salad b4. I didn't add the raisins because I knew my family wouldn't like it. it didn't seem sweet enough tho, I guess because the rasins add sweet, so I added some brown sugar and it worked well. I made the meat balls the night b4 and put them into the sauce right from the fridge. I also doubled the sauce and glad I did as everyone loved it on their noodles. This would be great with rice too. My German DH loved it and said all that was missing was his German potato salad, next time...thanks for posting this tasty, easy recipe.

Great recipe! I used ground pork instead of ground beef and it was delicious. Thanks, Sue!
