  1. Very tasty. I used ground beef. I served it over mashed potatoes one day and over pasta the next. The sauce was a little sweet for my taste but we enjoyed the recipe.
  2. A really good recipe. The sauce was so rich and tasty. Next time we make them, we plan to add some fresh herbs to the sauce-lemon thyme would be nice. We cooked off the onion, then added the other sauce ingredients and cooked it for 20 minutes, then added the browned meatballs and cooked it all for a further 20 minutes. We had this over mashed potatoes, with veg on the side.
  3. We had various family/friends over this Sunday to watch football games and I served these burgers. The team we were cheering for didn't win but these burgers went over real well with everyone. I used ground beef and they were very tender. The sauce had a sweet-tangy flavor which everyone thought was delicious. Preparation was quick and easy, too, which made me happy. Thanks Manda, for another great recipe.
  4. Very tender & tasty - easy to make - had all the ingredients on hand! I had to omit the green pepper (DH won't eat it) so the sauce was a little sweet for me, but HE loved this, so will definitely make again. Served over steamed rice. I let this simmer for a little more than 2 hours while I sneaked out to a Jazzercise class - worked great for me!! Thanks!


I am a single gal, living on my own; currently working as an Occupational Therapist & living in Cumberland, MD. (It is "God's Country" out here...beautiful!) I LOVE to cook and bake, and love anything that looks, tastes, smells, or even closely resembles a veggie. I LOVE moo-cows, and therefore, cannot bring myself to eat any part of the adorable critters (i.e. NO RED MEAT!!) I love the outdoors, and pride myself on being the master griller on the fire pit. My mother's side of the family is 100% Polish, so I have an inborn passion for cooking...unfortunately, along with that comes a love of eating, too!! But, hey..u only live once, so I say "EAT, DRINK, and BE MERRY!!!"
