OK, so I'm giving this 5 stars, but that's with a lot of changes. I made them as appetizers for a shower, kept them small and put toothpicks in them for easy pick up from a baking pan. I made the recipe with 3# turkey meat (increasing all the other ingredients X3 of course) and made about 55 meatballs. I spent a lot of time reading MANY of the reviews and this is what I came up with.
Add onion soup mix to meat--did that
Bake instead of fry the meat--did that
Cut sugar in 1/2--did that
Cut soy sauce in 1/2--did that
Use cornstarch instead of flour--did that
Add pineapple to sauce--did that (1/2 can fruit)
with all the juice added to the water
Add red pepper to sauce--did that
Add ketchup--Used General Tsao Sauce instead of ketchup.
They turned out great. Made them a day ahead and put them in the oven to warm before serving. The only thing that I think I'll do different (even though people disagreed) is to add some General Tsao's right into the meat as well as to the sauce. I think it would add to the flavor.
Hope this condensed version of comments will help keep you from spending a lot of time searching.
