"This recipe was amazingly delicious!!! Would also be good if a person didn't make meatballs but just put ground meat and mixed it all up. Would be excellent to eat like sloppy joes!!"

"This is a good recipe, though a little salty. My family liked it. I put the slow cooker on high for the first hour of cooking to increase the temperature faster, since I'm a little apprehensive about starting with raw ground meat in that appliance."
