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!

My family really loved these great-tasting and tender meatballs. We did think they were a little sweet, so I may add some salt to counter that next time. YUMMY!

We liked this recipe, but I thought the sauce was a little sweet. I'm not sure how I would have changed it though, & my DH said he liked it the wasy it was. It thickened up without the cornstarch.

This was surprisingly good. For the sauce I sued a full can of low sodium beef broth & doubled the gingersnaps added a few juniper berries. The flavor was perfect, not overly sweet or sour. Also I found that I did not need the cornstarch, as it thickened on its own from the gingersnaps nicely. Served with mashed potatoes and braised red cabbage. Thank you Sue L. for sharing the recipe.

YUMMY!! I made a double batch of the meatballs and froze them. This was so easy to put together! FDH loves German food, so we'll be putting this one on the regular rotation. I served it over egg noodles, but I'm thinking we might have it with mashed potatoes next time. Thanks for sharing! :)

I so much wanted to go crazy for these but I found them to be ok. I just felt something was missing and I couldn't put my finger on it.

Outstanding, Sue! Even those eating wheat-free and gluten-free can enjoy this. I used gluten-free gingersnaps from Kinnikinnick and served mashed potatoes in place of noodles. The only thing I'll do differently next time is line the pan with foil to save on clean-up. Next time ground beef is on sale, I'm going to stock my freezer with these little babies! :)
