 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      12 oz can     favorite beer
    1      6 oz can      spicy V-8® vegetable juice
    1      teaspoon      fresh lemon juice
    1      teaspoon      hot sauce
      1/2  cup           Italian breadcrumbs
    1      cup           chopped onions
                         salt and pepper -- to taste
    1      28 oz bottle  ketchup
    1      teaspoon      prepared horseradish
    1      teaspoon      Worcestershire sauce
    2      pounds        lean ground beef -- (up to 3 pounds)
    2                    eggs -- (up to 3)
 
 Combine ground beef, 1/2 cup onions, Italian breadcrumbs, eggs.  Make the
 mixture into small meatballs.  Then fry or bake the meat.
 
 In a saucepan combine the remaining ingredients.  Simmer for 15 minutes.
 
 Put meatballs and sauce into a crockpot. The sauce should cover the meat.
 Allow to simmer in the crockpot for at least 3 hours (the longer you let
 them simmer, the better they are!  Six to ten 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.
