"This was pretty good but could have used a little more sauce. I baked the meatballs in the oven on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet for 20 mins. at 400 deg. - it's easier than turning them in the s..." See moreaucepan and also collects any fat."
"Yum! Better than the chinese restaurant. The only changes I made were: had no fresh ginger so added a few dashes of ground, and had no green bell pepper so used a yellow one instead. Adding beef bouil..." See morelon to the meatballs was tasty; I had never tried that before, and they were awesome. The sauce was great too; thanks for a great recipe!"

"OMG!!! This is an excellent dish!!! I invited friends over and made these meatballs for them. I followed the directions EXACTLY and got perfect results! The sauce was just right (not too thick, no..." See moret too thin). I used ground ginger because I didn't have fresh ginger on hand (just eyeball it). The meatballs are EXCELLENT served over egg noodles (I prefer noodles instead of rice). Serve with a tossed salad and cold applesauce on the side. These meatballs are very versatile and can be served with a variety of sauces (i.e. Bar-B-Q sauce or brown gravy - just omit the pepper and pineapple!) to change things up a bit. This recipe is a winner for sure. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!"
