      Great dish. I will go less on the allspice and cloves but loved this one. It is so different than anything I have tried. Served with brussel sprouts for a side.

      I grew up in Germany and was craving the Sauerbraten taste but I didn't want to marinate meat for a week. This did the trick so well that I made it two nights in a row. My family loved it.

      I tried these last night, and thought they were just ok. They were a little to vinegary for my taste. I have another meatball recipe I like better so I'll probably not use this one again
