    Great dish. I will go less on the allspice and cloves but loved this one. It is so different than anything I have tried. Served with brussel sprouts for a side.

    I grew up in Germany and was craving the Sauerbraten taste but I didn't want to marinate meat for a week. This did the trick so well that I made it two nights in a row. My family loved it.

    I tried these last night, and thought they were just ok. They were a little to vinegary for my taste. I have another meatball recipe I like better so I'll probably not use this one again

    My family really enjoyed these! I followed the original recipe but used ground turkey instead of ground beef. I'd probably use less cider vinegar next time, but I did enjoy the tart flavor.
