This was an easy recipe! The entire family, including a 16 month old, LOVED it! My only sad news is that someone put ground veal by the ground pork.. and i just grabbed one... so.. I made mine with veal. I will say that the meatballs were ABSOLUTELY amazing and buttery. I served these on brown rice, with a side of Fresh snow peas that i quickly sauted in Unsalted butter, 2 TBS of Soy Sauce, and a TBS of the Hoisin Sauce.. It was PERFECT! We will be making this recipe for years to come! Thanks!

It was pretty easy to put together - i used frozen meatballs instead. Was definitely ready in the 4 hour. Flavor was ok, but not amazing. Nice quick appetizer for a party!

Excellent week night dinner. I baked them in the oven instead of using the crockpot. Also, I didn't have any plum sauce, so I used orange marmalade instead. It turned out fine.

These meatballs are amazing! I baked my meatballs and heated sauce in pan on stove and then combined. Perfect! Making again this weekend!

The recipe seemed promising but we found the flavor of the sauce to be too overwhelming. I won't make this again.

This was a great recipe, one of the few my whole family likes. I used pork stew bits instead of ground pork because my local store doesn't sell ground pork. I serve d this with rice and snow peas. My 2 1/2 yr old daughter hates rice and still ate it. It was full of flavor and really filling! I will make this again and again.

This was great. Super easy to make, and the meatballs were done after 3 1/2 hours, and still moist and tender. I didn't have any ginger on hand, but next time I make it I will include it because I think it would be great in this. I served with brown rice, and mixed veggies with a little soy sauce. Definitely making this again.
