Normally I would rather buy pre-made meatballs because I hate to touch raw meat, plus it makes the throwing something together that much easier and faster. However, one I didn’t have any pre-made in the freezer, and we are trying to eat a little healthier right now, so homemade meatballs it was, and wow, so great!

What you need:

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 2 egg whites or 1 egg
  • 2 cups of onion divided
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup beef broth

How to make Slow Cooker BBQ Meatballs:

Toss together, your ground beef, bread crumbs, egg whites, Worcestershire sauce, 1 cup of thinly diced onions, and garlic.

Mix it really, whether with your hands, or with a potato masher like I use.

Form into 2″ balls. Set aside. I do wish I had thought to use my food processor for the onions in the meatballs, didn’t think of it until later.

In your slow cooker mix together BBQ sauce of your choice, beef broth, and the remaining onions.

Drop your meatballs into the sauce, give them a gentle stir to make sure they are fully covered in sauce.

Cook on low for 3-4 hours. Depending on how tightly you pack your BBQ meatballs together, they shouldn’t fall apart.

Enjoy with some delicious mashed potatoes, some veggies. Over some rice.
