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!!

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?
