This will make your house smell amazingly good, all day long. You'll be so ready for dinner, by the time evening rolls around!
Sauce: 1 large can of tomato juice 1 large can of tomatoes 1 large can tomato paste 1/2 cup sugar 1 stick of margarine 2 Tbl. chili powder 4 Tbl. flour 1 Tbl. salt 1/4 tsp. pepper 1/4 tsp. paprika 4 onions, diced 2 cloves garlic, crushed
Combine in a large pan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Turn to low heat and simmer for 3 hours. Keep a constant watch so sauce doesnâ€™t stick to bottom. (Or â€“ put it in a crockpot for the day. Much easier, and you don't have to worry about it burning on the bottom!) Add meatballs (uncooked) to the mix for the last 2 hours, if you're simmering on the stove. For crockpotting, I just put the meatballs in with the sauce in the morning and leave it alone all day.
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef 1 cup bread or cracker crumbs 2 cloves garlic, minced 4 eggs 1/2 cup oil salt and pepper
Mix well and form into small meatballs. Add to sauce.
