Ingredients

  • For the meatballs

  • 680g ground beef

  • ¾ cup quick oats

  • 1 cup milk

  • 3 tbsps very finely minced onion

  • 1½ tsps salt

  • Plenty of ground black pepper

  • 3 tbsps distilled white vinegar

  • 2 tbsps sugar

Preparation

Step 1


For the meatballs: In bowl, combine the ground beef and oats. Pour in the milk, and then add the onions, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Roll the mixture into tablespoon-size balls and refrigerate them for 30 to 45 minutes to firm.


Step 2


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.


Step 3


Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dredge the meatballs in the flour, and then brown the meatballs in batches until light brown. As they brown, place them into a rectangular baking dish.


Step 4


For the sauce: Stir together the ketchup, onions, vinegar, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Drizzle the sauce evenly on the meatballs.


Step 5


Bake until bubbly and hot, about 45 minutes.
