Cook's Notes: A very simple, easy and delicious recipe from bettycrocker.com So delicious  in fact when Cathy went to leave this was all that was left of her recipe.  And she even doubled the batch!
Ingredients Meatballs:
  • 1 lb. lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped water chestnuts
  • 1/3 cup Progresso plain bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1/4 cup milk

  • 1 TB. soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup prepared barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup plum sauce
  • 2 TB. hoisin sauce
Directions:
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 15x10x1-inch pan with cooking spray.
In large bowl, mix meatball ingredients.
Shape into about 36 (1-inch) meatballs. Place in pan. Cover lightly with foil.
Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until meatballs are thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in center.
Turn once or twice during baking to prevent sticking to bottom of pan.
