I made a double batch of these and they were very, very good! They're not as tangy as I was expecting, so next time I may reduce the maple syrup to balance that a little. But they are delicious as is. I used venison for the beef, and found these need to be drained very well before adding the sauce. (And venison is quite lean.) We enjoyed these different meatballs. Thanks Laurie!
