Meatballs with SW BBQ Sauce

Meatballs with SW BBQ Sauce (from the Complete Canadian Living Cookbook)

2lbs / 800g ground beef/mince

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper

1/2 cup dry breadcrumbs

(NOTE – I used about 300 g of beef and cut down the other ingredients by half which made the right amount for the 4 of us)

Combine all ingredients. Roll tablespoonfuls into balls. Place of a foil lined baking tray and bake at 375F/190C for about 15 mins or until cooked through (mine took 20 mins)

SW BBQ Sauce

1 teaspoon vegie oil

1 small onion, minced

1 clove garlic, minced

1 teaspoon each chilli powder and cumin

3/4 cup ketchup

1/3 cup water

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup cider vinegar (I used white wine vinegar)

1 tablespoon each Dijon mustard and worchestershire sauce

Dash hot pepper sauce

Heat oil in pan. Cook onion, garlic, cumin, chilli powder, stirring often for 5 mins. Add remaining ingredients, bring to simmer and cook for 5 mins. Add meatballs and turn to coat.

(note – I made about 1/4 of this amount of sauce – it was very tasty, kind of like homemade ketchup with a little kick – and that was more than enough for us. If you served it with pasta or rice or something, you could do more sauce)
