      It may not be fair for me to rate this since I started with frozen meatballs, but I will anyway because I loved the end result so much (and so did my kids). I started the recipe by adding the 1/4 cup of oil to the skillet, let it get hot and then skipped to step six. Instead of adding water, I added two cups of beef broth (and I think I could have easily added more to thin out the gravy a bit) and omitted the salt. I followed the remainder of the steps as written adding the frozen meatballs at the end and heating through. It was DELICIOUS...a definite 5-star, keeper recipe!

      This is the same recipe my grandmother used, and nobody knew where to find it (everything was stored in her head, lol). The only thing I changed was to cut the 2 tsp. of salt (in the meatballs) in half. Excellent recipe, thanks!!
