BBQ Meatballs Recipe
Hi kids, mom and dad! This is Chef David Bishop from the Chef to You. Thanks for watching kids cooking. Today, I’d like to teach you how to mix barbecue meatballs. Let’s look at the tools we’re going to need today. We’re going to need our mixing bowl, a pot to put our sauce in and our meatballs eventually. I got a glass this year with sides so I make meatballs and grease won’t wear off in the oven.
In a plate, we’ll take me balls out and we’re going to drain a little bit on this paper before we put them on the sauce, a wire whip for our sauce, measuring spoons, measuring cups. Let’s take a look at our ingredients and let’s put this together. So we’re going to start putting this together. We got our ground beef in here. This is about a 90% lean, we got garlic, salt, pepper, oatmeal, we got two eggs. I put a Worcestershire sauce in here sometimes. Sometimes, I’ll use the catsup, sometimes a soy sauce. Today, I'm going to use my A-1. I'm just going to eyeball it, I want about two or three tablespoons. Your personal preference and what you like. You can also put real fine diced onions in here.
I’m going to slide this bowl over just a little bit and our next step, we’ll take this bread. We’re going to break it real small. Use the white bread if you have it or light wheat like I have right here and we’re going to break this up and we’re going to milk it and get it real mushy almost like a baby food. I've got about a quarter cup of milk right here and we’re going to pour right over top of this. This is where we start to get our fingers into it. We’re going to have a real good mushy. We're going to mush this down till it’s like baby food.
I save this to the last because I know my fingers we’re going to get in and we’re going to mix up these meatballs in just a minute. Very important to remember, meatloaf, meatballs, Salisbury steak, chicken salad, potato salad when you’re mixing something like this in a bowl, put all your ingredients in together at one time and then mix it. Don’t put one out of it and mix it, another, and mix it, very important, put everything in one time.
I’m going to pour my bread in here, move all the stuff out of the way. I’m going to take my hand and just mix this up really good till it’s well blended. It’s very important, all that blend in you said oatmeal I don’t want to eat it and it will be on my meatballs you all want to all over. Just give a second here and we’ll get this mixed up real good and you don’t want any oatmeals in there.
What it does, it makes that meatball nice and firm and even houses a little bit of the flavor and that mixes up a little bit more and you want to blend it. You want the chunks of oatmeal in one corner and breading in another corner. We want to mix it up good. Kids, this should be a fun thing for you to do, get your hands washed real good first and get it here and just mix this up.
All right they’re much great right here and you see all blended up well, put these dish out of the way and with this pan right to the center. Now we’re going to make little meatballs. I make about that big, take in your hand and roll them, set it right into the dish. Now you can make little tiny ones, if we’re going to roll it along, see how tiny that one is. You can actually make them that size if you want. The thing to remember is you want to make them all the same size that way everybody gets the same size meatballs. Out of this we should get around 24 meatballs, I’m going to change the roll in this and I’ll be back in just second.
Alright, there’s 21 and there’s 22. I will get in touch a little bit because they’re going to shrink up a little bit. I want to set that aside. Let’s take a look at our sauce. I want to put a half cup of catsup in here and a quarter cup of water. We’ll take our brown sugar, put in here, stir this up with a wire whip and then to a low medium heat while our meatballs are cooking so that it gets good and hot, all right I’ll see you in 20 minutes.
It’s been 20 minutes. I've taken some of the meatballs. Put them on this plate right here. Now what we’re going to do is take the meatballs and put them over here in this sauce. We’re going to stir it up real good. We coat them down, put them on the stove top the lid, low heat for about 15 minutes while we wash up all of our dishes and get ready for supper. We’ll be back in just a minute.
Okay, all of our dishes are done. I’ve got some rice on the plate. I cooked the bread already but we’re going to put style for these meatballs on the plate ready now with the rice. I don’t know if any of you are getting hungry, I sure am. You can use a bottled sauce instead of using a sauce we did today. All right it was great right there. I'm going to take a little bit of parsley. Sprinkle it on top. The famous chef says, “Bam!” We’re going to say, “Kid’s Cookin’!” I’ll be right back.
Hey kids, learn how to cook. You’ll love it for a lifetime. This is Chef David Bishop until next time. God Bless.
