BBQ MeatballsSource: The Pioneer Woman
- 1½ lbs Ground Beef/Ground Pork mixture
- ½ cup Oats
- ½ cup Panko Bread Crumbs
- ¾ cup Milk
- 3 Tbsp Very Finely Minced Onion
- 1½ tsp Salt
- Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
- 1 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging
- canola oil, for frying
- 1 cup Ketchup
- 2 Tbsp Sugar
- 3 Tbsp Vinegar
- 2 Tbsp Worcestershire
- 4-6 Tbsp minced Onion
- Tabasco (or your favorite hot sauce)
Combine all meatball ingredients. Roll into medium-sized balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place sheet in freezer for five minutes.
After 5 minutes, remove meatballs from freezer and immediately dredge in unseasoned flour.
Brown meatballs in canola oil in skillet on top of stove until just brown. Place into a baking dish.
Combine all sauce ingredients. Pour over meatballs and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Serve on their own, on a bed of rice or mashed potatoes, or on a bread roll!
I changed a few tiny things from the original recipe. I used half ground beef and half ground pork. When I was adding the milk-an entire cup seemed like too much so I stopped at 3/4 cup. It was the perfect amount. I also used less oats and added panko bread crumbs because I love them in meatballs.
The bbq sauce is really, really good. I am a big fan! I might even suggest to make a double batch of sauce so you have extra for adding sauce on to your bread roll or even just to dip into.
