Meatballs in Beer Sauce

By
Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

In a comment posted by Roy Kelley , he mentioned it was time for me to repost this recipe I shared several years ago.  I had all but forgotten it.
 
Sacramento has been experiencing several days of rainstorms.  Current weather conditions turns thoughts to comfort foods.  Meatballs in Beer Sauce, sounds good to me!

It’s easy to put together, and is so enjoyable on days like this.

I would also like to recommend a movie that I watched today.  It's titled "The Report". It's based on true events, about a Senate staffer who leads an investigation into the CIA's post- 9/11 detention and interrogation program. A horrific secret kept from the public.  I watched the flick via Amazon Prime.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat

What a timely post!  We are getting more rain later today.  I will look for that movie. I am curious about the flavor that the beer will add, sounds inviting.

Don't eat meat, but I guess we could make this with ground chicken or turkey meat. It sounds good.  D
