PW's BBQ Meatballs

Yes, I am, once again, posting a recipe from the Pioneer Woman.  I have made these a couple of times.  The first time, I followed her recipe to a tee.  The second time, I cheated.  In my opinion, the meatballs were still delicious despite shaving time and fat off the recipe by cheating, so that is the route I will go in the future.  Either way, these meatballs have a classic, tangy flavor, perfect for serving with some mashed potatoes and green beans for a real comfort food meal.

My green beans that you see pictured I canned myself, along with the help of some of my in-laws.  When I buy green beans from the grocery store, I tend to stick to either fresh or frozen. There is something about canning vegetables yourself that makes them taste ever so much better. I am so looking forward to planting my garden this year!  I want to do more canning and freezing than ever before!  I just love eating my own vegetables year round and knowing exactly where my food came from.
