I tell you Pioneer Woman has never let me down. All of her recipes are wonderful and this is no exception. We had these the other night and everyone (the 9, 5, and 2 years olds included) loved it.
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
3/4 cup quick oats
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons finely mince onion
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
ground black pepper
1/2 cup flour
1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons vinegar
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
4-6 tablespoons finely minced onion
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine beef, oats, milk, 3 T minced onion, salt and black pepper. Roll into medium-small balls and place onto a cookie sheet. Place sheet in freezer for 5 minutes. Remove from freezer and immediately dredge meatballs in flour and place back on cookie sheet.
In a large skillet heat some canola oil, enough to coat bottom of skillet. Brown the meatballs in the oil in batches (it took me 3 batches), placing browned meatballs in a 9x13 baking dish.
Combine sauce ingredients and pour evenly over the top of the meatballs. Bake uncovered for about 45 minutes at 350. Meatballs and sauce should be sizzling around the edges.
