Ingredients

To Make the Meatballs

  • 1 pound 96% Lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 small shallot chopped
  • 1/3 cup bread crumbs
  • Salt & pepper to taste

To Make the Sauce

    • 1 cup barbecue sauce (we used homemade)
    • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
    • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

Instructions

  1. To make the meatballs, mix all ingredients in a large bowl and shape into small meatballs. Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat and add some oil. Cook the meatballs until browned on the outside and entirely cooked through.
  2. Once the meatballs are cooked, mix all sauce ingredients together. Add to the slow cooker with the meatballs and cook on low for 3-4 hours. The meatballs keep in the slow cooker for another 1-2 hours.
