Absolutely the easiest and best barbeque meatballs in the world! This is a favorite recipe of my kids. They ask for it over and over! It’s quick, easy, and very tasty! I’ve taken it to church and potlucks and it’s always a hit. It even works great as an appetizer!
I’ve been making this barbeque meatball recipe for as long as I can remember. I don’t even remember where I got the recipe from, but it’s definitely yummy. I love serving it with a plate of steamy, white rice or creamy macaroni and cheese.
2 pounds ground beef
2 tbsp. flour
2 tsp. mustard
1/2 tsp. onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 –1/2 tsp. garlic powder (optional)
1 cup ketchup
1 cup water
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/2 apple cider vinegar
Spray a large baking dish with non-stick spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix all of the meatball ingredients. Make meatballs about 1 1/2″ diameter and put in baking dish. Set aside.
In a small bowl mix all of the barbeque sauce ingredients. Pour over meatballs and bake at 350 degrees for 30-45 minutes. Cook time is determined by the size of the meatballs or to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
Great served with rice or macaroni and cheese!
Crockpot Version: Make just like above and put in crockpot. Cook on slow for 4-6 hours.
