I rate this recipe 4 stars, my husband says only 3. This is a nice and easy recipe for the crock pot. It's more sweet than sour which I enjoyed but my husband felt it was too sweet and needed a little something more. I was happy to find a recipe to use up the canned jellied cranberry sauce leftover from Thanksgiving. I would make this again but perhaps try a spicier chili sauce. *UPDATE: the leftovers tasted great the next day! The flavors just came together after being refrigerated a day. I now change my rating to 5 stars!
I have been making this dish for years. I have the same recipe in an old weight watchers cookbook called "Just like Home".There are 7 points for 3 meatballs and 2 tbls of sauce. I only make 1/2 a recipe (only two of us) and use the rest for leftovers which is also outstanding.I serve them over noodles. This has a wonderful tangy flavor. I just throw the meatballs in with the other ingredients and skip the high heat cooking time. When I come home from work, dinner is almost done.
