I love the sweet and spicy flavors of Chinese food and decided to try to incorporate them into a meatball. The subtle tastes of the meatball blend well with the spicy Sriracha and sweet chili sauce. The garam masala adds a hint of coriander, black pepper and cinnamon for a unique and fun flavor. —Darlene Buerger, Peoria, Arizona

"This turned out amazing. It was too spicy for my mother, who hesitates using black pepper. The photo does not represent the dish. There is a delicious brown sauce that is not shown, it would probably be hard to get a pinnable picture as served. I had 12 meatballs that taste like sweet Italian sausage; The majority of flavor comes from the sauce."

"Family agree, they want their Italian or Swedish meatballs next time. Sorry, this one did not make the cut. The taste was just not satisfying enough to try again."
