Jammin’ Judy is back with a weeknight favorite, Russian Meatballs. Use your own meatballs or frozen meatballs, either way the magic is in the sauce.
This recipe is adapted from a similar recipe in “Great Cooking Ideas” (copyright 1978). In the cookbook you have to make your own meatballs, and the alcohol is NOT cooked in. When I lost the cookbook, I wanted to make the recipe and adapted what I remembered to something that can be turned into a quick weeknight meal. The result is what you have here. This is a family favorite, which my kids ask for often.
Although the cooking time is 20-30 minutes, you can cook longer if needed. Or, you can make ahead and reheat. The dish also freezes well. I often make a double-batch and freeze half of the meatballs & sauce for a second meal.
