I love Pioneer Woman (thepioneerwoman.com). This recipe was really good. I made mine with ground venison so I reduced the cooking time by 15 minutes. My son said it tasted EXACTLY like the meatballs in the meatball sandwiches at his SCHOOL. Not exactly the review I was going for, but I was pleased he tried and enjoyed them. I doubled the recipe and froze the other half of the meatballs for another time. Thanks for reposting this recipe.
Youza! These were delcious. I love so many of the Pioneer Woman's recipes and this is one. I doubled the sauce just because we like lots of sauce and used 1 teaspoon onion powder instead of onion and served the meatballs over mashed potatoes. I do think next time I would cut back a little on the vinegar in the sauce but that is just a family preference. These take a little time to prepare, but they are worth it!!
