  1. These are delicious. I always seem to overdo them tho. But today I checked back to the recipe and low and behold they only take 2-3 hours. ?

  2. Wow…..omg this was delicious. All my (eating) kids ate this with going for seconds (one kid went back for 3rds!) So this will be made regularly ! Thanks Paulene Christie??

  3. 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.

  4. This was absolutely beautiful, was a big hit with the whole family, there were no leftovers with this, definitely one for making on a regular basis.

  5. 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

  6. 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!

    Delicious. I used honey instead of jam, left out the sugar and used my home made tomato sauce.. yum yum

    It was so quick and easy, and absolutely delicious. Except for the sausages all the other ingredients were in the cupboard. I will definitely be making it again
