"I made this dish to serve at a candle party I was having. It was very good. One of my guests asked if she could take a bowl of meat balls home!! I would only suggest that you make sure you get your..." See more meat balls good and brown, even to the point of being crusty on the outside, because when they marinate and then cook they will get soft. Some of mine began falling apart as I stired while cooking, I think because they were not browned long enough. I also cut the amount of whiskey in half ~ I've never tried it with the full amount of whiskey, so I'm not saying that the full amount is bad. The recipe suggests cooking for at least a half hour, but I suggest you cook them much longer than that. At the 30 minute point we didn't like them at all, and my husband and I considered throwing them out, but after they cooked for a couple of hours they really became quite good. I will certainly make this recipe again!!"
"I haven't served the finished product yet but I have comments about the recipe itself. First, one small onion is too much. 1/2 of a very small onion would work better. Second, double the marinade o..." See morer it won't even cover the balls as you marinate them. Third, medium heat is too high. Cook on low or you'll burn them. Finally, you might want to add some oil to the pan before you begin frying. It will prevent the balls from falling apart when you need to turn them."
