Barbecue Meatball Recipe

Meatball Recipe

Most of us grew up eating some kind of meatball recipe for dinner.  There are countless recipes and ethnic variations of this classic favorite.

This particular recipe uses minced onion, brown sugar, and vinegar and tomato sauce to give it that BBQ taste. Seasoned salt with its savory combination of spices and herbs, whether store bought or homemade, ads the extra kick of flavor.

Its ingredients differ, but the general base of garlic, onion and black pepper really does make a difference compared to most meatballs.


1 lb. hamburger
1 cup minced onion
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 Tablespoons cooking oil
2 (8 oz.) cans tomato sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon seasoned salt


1. Combine first seven ingredients and shape into 12 meatballs.

2. Brown in oil in skillet, remove excess fat.

3. Combine tomato sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and seasoned salt. Pour over meatballs.

4. Simmer over low heat 10-15 minutes, turning frequently until meatballs are well glazed. Serve over rice or noodles.
