I have used this recipe several times. Everyone loved it! Better and differnt than the usual sauce we have been using to make our meatballs. This is great!
I made my own meatballs. I used a can of sliced pineapple, and cut into 1 inch pieces.
I used dark brown sugar, in place of brown sugar. Tasty, simple, but will try again with pork.
Whether you make your own or get them from the frozen foods aisle, meatballs are convenient, versatile, and at home in nearly every cuisine.
