    Ann Arber's Note:

    This is another wonderful recipe by my mother, Geraldine Shaub Lefever. It is a testament to her love of cooking and her skill that her grandchildren are cooking her recipes now for their families, too.

      Originally I didn’t know what I did wrong. The sauce was separating for me - kind of oily & clumpy. We ended up throwing the whole thing away. My boyfriend (who will eat anything served) refused this! After talking to my mother – she thinks that I should have used a cast iron skillet instead of a nonstick pan. She says that that would have absorbed the excess oil. SO If I were to make this again I would either change the pan or cut way back on the oil.

      Sorry, the sauce turned out horribly for me. I followed the recipe perfectly and while the consistancy was of real gravy, it was bland and flavorless. I had to add beef bullion, garlic and tons of other tinkerings before it was palatable. I loved the meatballs, though. But the sauce was very bland.
