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!

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!

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

These meatballs were excellent. I didn't use as much red pepper as called for but it was fine. Just enough to give it some kick. Will make these again.
