Italian Style Meatballs in a Sweet & Spicy Wine Sauce

Servings: 8   |   Preparation: 120 Mins


Ingredients

  • 1 bag Rosina Italian Style Meatballs
  • 1 750 ml. bottle of sweet white wine; we used A Gust of Sun Sweet Niagara
  • 2 cups hot sauce
  • 2 cups dark brown sugar
  • ½ cups Buckwheat Honey
  • 1 stick of butter

Directions

Combine wine, brown sugar, honey, butter and hot sauce in a large pot over medium-high heat. When butter melts, add meatballs, and stir to coat. Simmer uncovered for 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until the sauce is reduced by half. If preparing in a crock pot, cook frozen meatballs in sauce on high for 4 hours. Place the crock pot lid slightly ajar to release the steam which, in turn, reduces the sauce.
