I thought these were good, but not great. The balls had good flavor, but there was simply not enough sauce. I would make these again, but double the gravy.
All in all this was pretty good. The meatballs had a more hamburger like texture than meatball and I am not sure if it was because I used rye crisp crumbs instead of bread crumbs. The only other things I would do is use an extra 3/4 c. beef broth instead of the water for the sauce. LOVED the mushrooms in the sauce. I will tinker with the meatballs maybe try the bread crumbs instead. For what looked like a long list of ingredients it actually went together quite easily.
