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.
This was enjoyed by the whole family. I definitely will cut the sugar down to between 1 and 1.5 cups, and perhaps reduce the amount of milk as well since they were quite soft. Delicious with rice and a veggie, or even with an egg noodle. Will definitely make again. Made the two dishes complete and will freeze one, then thaw heat and serve.
We enjoyed these tonight as our entree, with a side of Mashed Potatoes and some green beans. I cut the recipe to 1/8 to serve just the two of us. They turned out a little too soft, but I'm positive that's because I guesstimated some of the ingredient measurements. Took some previous reviewers' advice and used only half the brown sugar, and it was perfect for us. Thanks for sharing this quick, easy recipe! I will definitely make these again.
My faily loved this, the leftovers were ate right away the next day. Great in sandwichs too.
Great meatballs! I love serving them over rice with a green veggy on the side. Thanks!
My husband says 5 stars! And meatballs are not usually a favorite dish of his! I have to agree with everything in 'michelle''s review- I froze the meatballs and made a partial recipe of the sauce when I was ready to bake enough for two. I don't use liquid smoke and so W- sauce worked great. The barbecue sauce has a wonderful consistency and great flavor, but do decrease the sugar unless you like your BBQ very sweet.
These meatballs freeze well (uncooked)i put them into a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze then bag them ready to go with rice or spagetti or even for subs.I do cut the sauce sugar to one cup ( my preference )and if i'm out of liquid smoke i use Worcestershire sauce instead.
