BBQ Meatballs

Here I go again, making more Pioneer Woman recipes. This one was a major hit with my husband. Made these meatballs this evening and gave my 6 month old son a bath while they baked in the oven.  The house smelled so good when we walked downstairs. My husband thinks these should be called meatloaf balls.

Ingredients for meatballs:

  • 1-1/2 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cups oats
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons very finely minced onion
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon salt
  • ground black pepper, to taste

Items needed for browning meatballs:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • vegetable oil

Ingredients for sauce:

  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons worcestershire
  • 6 tablespoons finely minced onion
  • 1 dash hot sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all meatball ingredients. Roll into medium-small balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place sheet in freezer for five minutes.
  3. After 5 minutes, remove meatballs from freezer and immediately dredge in unseasoned flour.
  4. Brown meatballs in vegetable oil until just brown. Place into a 13 x 9 glass baking dish.
  5. Combine all sauce ingredients. Pour over meatballs and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve mashed potatoes.
