"These are so good. I made them with ground pork and they were perfect. I then kept them hot in a crock pot. Very, very good."

"These were awesome. I followed the recipe exactly, except added some sesame seeds to the meatballs. The meatballs were moist and very tasty. The sauce was delicious. You could even use the sauce tas a dipping sauce for chicken or shrimp. This is a keeper!!"

"This recipe is very easy to make, tastes great and is not your standard cocktail meatball. I doubled the sauce and put the cooked meatballs and sauce into a 1 1/2 quart crockpot to serve. Will definitely make these again!"
