BBQ Meatballs

Adapted from Pioneer Woman

I was craving something hearty without much effort on my part, and when I saw these meatballs I knew it was meant to be. Pioneer Woman has never let me down. Good BBQ sauce is a rare find in this part of the world, so it was fun to try to make my own (and I did tweak the recipe a bit) although I think I would double it next time so as to have extra.

1 1/2 lb ground beef
3/4 cup oats
1 egg
3 Tbsp finely minced onion
1 1/2 tsp salt
ground black pepper

BBQ Sauce:
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp paprika
1 Tbsp chili powder
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tsp cayenne

Preheat oven to 350. Combine all meatball ingredients. Roll into medium/small sized balls and brown in a frying pan over medium heat and place in a baking dish. Combine all sauce ingredients in a sauce pan and simmer for 10-15 minutes until thickened. Pour BBQ sauce over meatballs and bake for 45 minutes.
