I came across this recipe while living abroad many years ago.  These meatballs are as finger-licking good as barbecued ribs but easier to eat.

Barbecue Meatballs Recipe


Barbecue Meatballs

2 eggs

½ cup evaporated milk

1 cup dry bread crumbs

1 small onion, chopped

1 tsp. salt

½ tsp. pepper

2 Lbs. ground beef

Sauce:    1 ½ cups water

2/3 cup packed browned sugar

¼ cup chili sauce

3 Tbsp. cider vinegar

3 Tbsp. soy sauce

2 Tbsp. ketchup

1 ½ tsp. ground ginger

¼ tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. pepper

Dash Worcestershire sauce

In a large bowl, combine the first six (6) ingredients.  Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.  With wet hands, shape into 1-inch balls.  In a large skillet, brown meatballs in small batches over medium heat, turning often.  Remove with slotted spoon and keep warm; drain.

In the same pan, combine sauce ingredients.  Bring to a boil over medium heat.  Reduce heat; add the meatballs.  Simmer uncovered for 30 minutes or until sauce is absorbed.       6 ½ dozen
