Sor­ry my sweet and sour meat­ball are bet­ter!!


I am on Coumadin (blood thin­ner) and cran­ber­ry is pro­hib­it­ed. Can you think of a good sub­sti­tute because these sound real­ly good!?


I would think Cur­rant jel­ly would work! I know the chili sauce/grape jel­ly com­bo is pret­ty good on the lil smok­ies.


Mak­ing this delight tonight.… with a nice bed of white rice and broc­coli. 🙂


No beef broth on hand so I used 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup bour­bon and added a lit­tle beef bouil­lon. These were excel­lent!
