Beer Braised Meatballs

Beer Braised Meatballs – Delicious Sauce

These Beer Braised Meatballs and the braising sauce they’re cooked in are absolutely delish!! I made these for my friends and they scarfed ’em down!


Served them over egg noodles.

Love the idea of browning the meatballs in the oven first. It prevents them from falling apart.
