Ingredients

Meatballs

  • 1 lb extra-lean ground beef
  • 1/3 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1 yellow onion, grated
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper

Sauce

  • 3/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Instructions

  • Mix sauce together in a large bowl and set aside.
  • In another large mixing bowl, mix meatballs together until combined. Heat a large skillet over high heat then sear meatballs for 2-3 minutes each side until lightly cooked and browned.
  • Gently add meatballs to crockpot with tongs, then cover with sauce. Cook on high for 2 hours, or on low for 4 hours.
  • Serve with toothpicks or in meal prep bowls with steamed broccoli. Leftovers will last up to 5 days in the fridge, and meatballs can be frozen up to 3 months. Enjoy!
