These are so good! Even my Daughter who protested slightly when I was setting it up loved it and asked for it again. So quick and easy with great flavour!

I cooked this Recipe last night and it was delicious! My husband is a bit fussy these days but he even cleaned! I did eat some mustard sauce and a little splash of vinegar because it was a wee bit sweet but that made it perfect. Thank you

5 stars yum!! Great sauce. I used two packs of pre-made meatballs. Due to my day and timing I put the ingredients in as per instructions but without the tea towel for 2hrs on high. Then removed meatballs to add cornflour to thicken the sauce. Returned meatballs, added the tea towel to the lid and continued to cooked on high for 2 more hours, stirring every half hr to help the sauce get thickened. And wow YUM. IT WAS THICK AND STICKY AND FULL OF FLAVOUR. we served with mashed potato and steamed vegetables.
