  4. 1/2 to 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  5. At least 6 cups of water


Combine the meatball ingredients and mix well.

Create the meatballs - any size you prefer - appetizers do look better with smaller meatballs!!

Combine the sauce ingredients in a generous size pot.

Add the meatballs.

Cook at least 1 hour on medium heat so sauce doesn't burn. Add water and/or additional salt, pepper or brown sugar as needed.

Note: You might want to simmer them for a while after the meatballs have fully cooked.
