Beer Meatballs


1 can of beer
1 6 oz can spicy V-8 juice
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. hot sauce
1/2 c. Italian bread crumbs
1 c. onions
Salt and pepper to taste
1 lg. bottle ketchup
1 tsp. horseradish
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 to 3 lbs. ground beef
2 to 3 eggs


Combine ground beef, 1/2 cup onions, Italian bread crumbs, eggs. Make the mixture into small meatballs, then fry or bake the meat.

In saucepan combine remaining ingredients. Simmer for 15 minutes. Put meatballs and sauce into slow cooker/Crock Pot. The sauce should cover the meat. Allow to simmer in slow cooker/Crock Pot for at least 3 hours, however, the longer you let them simmer, the better they are! 6 to 10 hours on low temperature is great.

Stir them occasionally. You may wish to add more ketchup, or V-8 juice – spice them up if you like them hot.
