Tangy Pork Meatballs Recipe

Yuletide buffet "grazers" stampede for these meatballs! The mouthwatering morsels go so fast, I often make several batches at once. Barbecue sauce adds a nice bite to the mildly seasoned ground pork.—Katie Koziolek, Hartland, Minnesota

"I stumbled across this recipe in my Christmas cookbook. I had all the ingredients and made this for a party at home. Wow. Wow. Very good and very easy. TIP: Cook meatballs completely if you're transferring them to a crock pot."
