The meatballs were fairly good, but kind of tasted like seasoned breadcrumbs, even though I halved those. Which might have been okay except for my second issue, which was the sauce. Like others, I tried to cut the ketchup. Honestly, while I totally understand the urge to do so, I wouldn't recommend it: you don't end up with enough sauce. You just don't. Also, the sweetness of the ketchup cuts the vinegar, and you need that if your meatballs are going to be sweet and sour and not just . . . sour. Having said that, this is clearly the result of my modifications to the recipe, and not anything to do with the recipe itself. I think that if I'd followed the instructions on the sauce, the bread-crumb flavor of the meatballs might have been masked a bit. So I'll probably try this recipe again - as written, this time!
