I used Sam Adams beer for these meatballs. I baked them, then cooked the recipe in a crockpot for three hours. Great aroma, and super taste. I used them for meatball heros. Dyn-O-mite.

This is a wonderful and easy recipe, and I make it frequently. My mom (who likes spicy food) uses the hot ketchup instead of regular. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing!!!

Excellent recipe, my husband loved these meat balls. I did add an egg to the recipe to hold the meat together. Worked well.

Very good, used it for superbowl. The kids weren't too crazy about them.
