1 12 oz can favorite beer
1 6 oz can spicy V-8 vegetable juice
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1 cup chopped onions
salt and pepper – to taste
1 28 oz bottle ketchup
1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 pounds lean ground beef – (up to 3 pounds)
2 eggs – (up to 3)
Combine ground beef, 1/2 cup onions, Italian breadcrumbs, eggs. Make
the mixture into small meatballs. Then fry or bake the meat.
In a saucepan combine the remaining ingredients. Simmer for 15
minutes. Put meatballs and sauce into a crockpot. The sauce should
cover the meat. Allow to simmer in the crockpot for at least 3 hours
(the longer you let them simmer, the better they are! Six to ten
hours on low temperature is great.) Stir them occasionally.
Add more ketchup or V/8 juice if desired, and spice them up if you
like them hot.
