“My husband would eat this for dinner every night if I would let him. It took his family 10 years of marriage to share this secret recipe with me (apparently, I wasn't family yet), so now I'm sharing it with the world. Hope you like it!”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Mix together the ground beef, rolled oats, 6 tablespoons of sweet onion, milk, salt, and black pepper until thoroughly combined. Roll the mixture into 2-inch meatballs, and place meatballs into the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a bowl, mix the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, 4 1/2 tablespoons of sweet onion, apple cider vinegar, and water until the sugar has dissolved, and pour the sauce evenly over the meatballs.
  4. Bake the meatballs and sauce in the preheated oven until the sauce is bubbling and thickened and the meatballs are no longer pink inside, about 1 1/2 hours. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of a meatball should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

Great recipe. I didn't have time to bake the 1 &1/2 hours, so I cooked the meatballs in a skillet and then added the sauce. Covered them for a little while to get nice and bubbly and then simmer. The sauce was delicious!

This recipe looked so yummy but it is much too salty to be placed in our meal rotation. You can cut the salt to 1/2 tsp with the meat. But the ketchup is still a problem unless you make homemade ketchup. One serving of this recipe contains 2/3 of our daily sodium intake.
