Barbeque Meatballs

When the Pioneer Woman posted this recipe for BBQ Meatballs last week, I was tempted to run out and make them immediately.

Well, I restrained myself, but I did make them on Sunday because, quite frankly, I couldn't wait much longer.

They were really easy to assemble, and I'm glad I remembered to start them early since they take a lot of time between freezing, browning, and baking.

The result? AWESOME. Unbelievably delicious. When she says "Comfort food to the max," she is NOT kidding around.

I served my husband's on a roll to make a sub...

...and I just plopped mine down atop my mashed potatoes!


  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons very finely minced onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • plenty of ground black pepper


  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons onion
  • Dash of Tabasco

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all meatball ingredients. Roll into medium-small balls and place on a cookie sheet. Place sheet in freezer for five minutes.

Remove from freezer and immediately dredge in unseasoned flour.

Brown meatballs in canola oil until just brown. Place into a baking dish.

Combine all sauce ingredients. Pour over meatballs and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Serve with egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or crusty french bread.


  1. I am drooling looking at your pics and thinking about making these - I need to do it soon!

  2. OMG we LOVE meatballs at our house and I've never tried them in BBQ sauce. I think I might have to steal the recipe this weekend! :)

  3. Yum - they look really good! Gorgeous pictures - now I'm craving meat!
