1 cup of Bread Crumbs
1 cup of grated Romano Cheese
1 tea spoon of salt
1 tea spoon of garlic powder
1 tea spoon of dried basil
Half of an an onion finely diced
3 table spoons of olive oil
1 cups of ketchup
1 cup of soy sauce
2 table spoons of honey
Combine all the meatball ingredients above in a mixing bowl except for the olive oil and mix it all well. The trick here is to mix it all together without over mixing it so you don’t get tough meat balls when they are cooked. You want to have juicy tender meatballs in the end.
With an ice cream scoop (or a simple table spoon if you don’t have any), scoop out some of the meat and place it on your hand. Roll it into a meatball and place it aside, continue until all the meat is rolled into meatballs. If you find the mixture too dry you could add some water, about a quarter cup, until you get the consistency you are comfortable with.
With the olive oil and pan, fry the meat balls until brown and slightly crispy, then set aside on a paper towel to allow it to drain all the oil out then start preparing the barbecue sauce. You could also place the meat balls into an oven and cook it at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.
Add all the ingredients of the barbecue sauce into a pan then cook while stirring it till it starts to simmer. At this point you should have the meatballs ready in a bowl, pour the sauce onto the meatballs and mix them well until they are fully and evenly coated.
You can serve these with rice or spaghetti or mashed potatoes, or you could eat them as bitings if you are serving them at a party.
