Meatballs in BBQ Sauce

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Top Review by crbrooks2002

I used 2lbs ground pork, and one lb group beef because that's what I had on hand. When mixing the meatballs start with only half the can of milk. That's probably all youwill need. When making the sauce i only used 1 cup sugar, and replaced half the ketchup with plain tomato sauce. Don't like it too sweet. I also added about 1/4 cup franks red hot to spice it up a bit. It also helps if you make the sauce in a smallpot on the stove. Just keep the temp low so it doesnt burn.
