Ingredients
  • Meatballs:
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 3/4 cup quick oats
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons very finely minced onion
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • Plenty of ground black pepper
  • 4 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Sauce:
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons minced onion
  • 3 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash of hot sauce, such as Tabasco
Directions

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.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

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.

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

Bake until bubbly and hot, about 45 minutes.
