Please tell me what 1/2 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce does when making 3 doz meatballs (or any thing 1/8,1/4,1/2 t does to any recipe) I’m always stymied when I read such small amounts.

Love! These meatballs are very moist and have great flavor. I substituted brown sugar. This recipe is a keeper! They work well in a slow cooker too :)

"Amazing" 30,YES"30"yrs. I've been using this recipe. NOT ONE PERSON ever had a dislike. It got to the point I wanted it to be my special recipe,but every week....someone would request I make them for a party etc. That's when I gave up and just printed off the recipe when ever I made it!!! But mind u.I double up on the sauce, other wise I find it to dry. Guess that's my dirty secret!

These are very good. I replaced the sugar with brown sugar. Made the flavor very rich.

Yum! These were so good. To make them lower carb, I used Splenda instead of sugar and it was really good. I put them into a slow cooker and it make them so good.

I've made this recipe several times since I found in last fall, and we just love it. Yesterday, since I was only making a half batch, I just added the sauce to the skillet, covered it and cooked on low until the meatballs were done.
