The meatballs were wonderful prepared this way. We enjoyed them very much, they were light tender and delicious. The gravy was silky and flavorful. It was a quick and easy meal to prepare, very comforting. We loved it. You will be missed very much Vera. RIP

Very moist and tender meatballs! Love the allspice in this. I made the full recipe and took it to the coast for my family. They all thoroughly enjoyed it. Forgot to take a pic, so made a half recipe for DH and me when I got home. He wants this again! I like that they are simmered a wee bit before browning. Thanks Bergy for sharing!
