I got this recipe from my mother. We always have it at parties. The fondue is a thick, rich, tomato-type fondue. There is no cheese in it and it doesn't need it. The meatballs soak up some of the sauce to make it super yummy! It's always a hit for us, so I thought I'd share.

  • Form ground beef into meatballs. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and cook meatballs, turning as needed, until browned, about 7 minutes.

  • Place meatballs in the slow cooker. Cook on High until sauce is thick, about 5 hours. Remove bay leaves before serving.

Cook's Note:

Sometimes I take the lid off and cook on Low for a while and it thickens up real good.
