Growing up, this was my absolute favorite dinner. Actually, it still is! My mom would make this for me on my birthday. She made this frequently, it reminds me of home. Even the smell of the vinegar reminds me of her house.
I tend to like this best with my own homemade meatballs, but the store bough homestyle ones work great in a pinch. Time to make more to store in my freezer. I usually make about 5lbs to keep on hand. Recipe coming soon.
This recipe is from my mom and then with the help of a few books, I doctored it to work in my slow cooker.
