29 ounce of water and 12 ounce water?


I was won­der­ing, can I add the meat­balls with­out brown­ing them first? I remem­ber mt great-grand­moth­er sim­mer­ing her meat­balls all day with­out brown­ing them & they fell apart in your mouth, but was­nt sure if I could do that with this recipe.


You are my family’s hero by the way! I have a 5-month old son & thanks to your web­site I have been able to get back to home-cooked meals! I hate I did­nt find you soon­er! Before you, I only had two crock-pot recipes, chili & pot roast & we were sick of both, lol. Thank you so much! We are a US Army fam­i­ly & my hus­band & our lit­tle fam­i­ly are sta­tioned in South Korea for 443 more days & you have allowed Amer­i­can good­ness back into our tum­mies! Much love!!


I love what you guys are up too. This type of clever work and expo­sure!
Keep up the great works guys I’ve you guys to my per­son­al blogroll.

8 a.m.I start­ed this @ 8a.m I didn’t brown the meat­balls, just added them to the sauce. Cook­ing on low, since the meat wasn’t browned should I let it cook how much longer? Anoth­er 3 or 4 hrs?
