I've turned to this recipe time and time again, and we always can't stop eating it. It's delicious. I make it and throw it in the crock pot on low when I'm going to be out for the day!
I have been making this for years and it is a favorite among family and friends. I have tweaked it over the years but it is great as is too. I do not use the pearl onions, I also bake my meatballs in the oven until brown. Everyone ask for this dish. I can't make it enough.
My family loves this meatball stew! I have made it for family and friends, and they say I'm a chef! But I know better, it's my taste of home recipes that make my meals a hit! In the winter I serve it with homemade buttermilk cornbread, and in the spring with the garlic toast. Yummy!
I baked the meatballs in the oven instead of browning them in the oil and then served this with store bought garlic bread...it was wonderful!
I needed a new recipe for a soup using ground beef, and this one was quite good. I didn't have the pearl onions (just chopped a bit of yellow onion and threw it in) or the majoram, which didn't matter...it was yummy. Some folks might find this too salty (hubby and I have terrific blood pressure and put salt on our salt) so consider the low sodium versions of soup and broth if that's of concern to you!
