For the Meatballs
1poundlean ground beef
1/4medium onionfinely diced
1large egglightly beaten
1/2teaspoonground black pepper
1/2cupdry bread crumbs
1 1/2teaspoonsWorcestershire sauce
For the Sauce:
1/2cuppacked brown sugar
1/2teaspoonsfreshly ground black pepper
1clovegarlicminced or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1medium jalapenodeseeded and diced
Preheat the oven to 325º F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil, arrange a wire rack onto the lined baking sheet, spray the wire rack well with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
Mix together ground beef, onion, egg, milk, salt, pepper, bread crumb, and Worcestershire sauce in a medium mixing bowl until well combined. Scoop the mixture into about tablespoon sized balls and roll firmly between palms of hand to form meatballs. Place onto the wire rack lined baking sheet.
Once all of the meatballs are formed, bake until the meatballs are cooked through, about 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine all of the ingredients for the sauce in a large skillet set over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes.
Arrange the cooked meatballs in a slow cooker and pour the thickened sauce over the meatballs. Gently stir the meatballs to coat with the sauce. Secure the lid on the slow cooker and set on low setting to keep warm as serving.
Freezer Friendly: I like to prepare my meatballs ahead and store in freezer-safe bags in the freezer for recipes such as this. You then just add the frozen meatballs to the heated sauce and cook until warmed throughout in the skillet or in the slow cooker.
