My fiancé looved this recipe. He is usually all about pre-cooked frozen meatballs in the crockpot. He said these were better! We recommend! After fully cooking the meatballs, my sauce was still pretty liquidy, so I turned up to heat to medium and let it simmer 5-10 minutes more to thicken up. We then used it as a sauce on our meatballs!

Quite yummy, I also let it reduce for quite a bit longer. I wonder how many pieces are in one serving...

The meatballs were good. I put a little bit of a twist on the recipe as I used apricot instead of orange marmelade because that's all I had. I also increased the red peppers because we like spicy food. It turned out great. I will make it again!

I love this recipe! Used rice wine vinegar, Himalayan Salt, and Smuckers Sugar Free Orange Marmalade as alternatives. I do love large meatballs so I made them bigger than an inch, but it cooked thru just as well and tasted amazing! Bon appétit!

Excellent! I made exactly as is except for adding fresh basil to the meatballs and omitting the red pepper, and my toddlers loved them! Would definitely make again.

I made this with apricot preserves since I didn't have orange marmalade. I also added diced red pepper and onion (about 1/3 cup combined)to the meatballs. This came out so delicious. Next time I will try the marmalade.

The recipe is easy and very tasty! We paired the meatballs with jasmine rice and steamed broccoli for dinner. My son absolutely loved it!
