For the meatballs

680g ground beef
¾ cup quick oats
1 cup milk
3 tbsps very finely minced onion
1½ tsps salt
Plenty of ground black pepper
4 tbsps canola oil
½ cup plain flour

For the sauce

1 cup ketchup
4 to 6 tbsps minced onion
3 tbsps distilled white vinegar
2 tbsps sugar
2 tbsps Worcestershire sauce
Dash of hot sauce, such as Tabasco
For the meatballs: In bowl, combine the ground beef and oats. Pour in the milk, and then add the onions, salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Roll the mixture into tablespoon-size balls and refrigerate them for 30 to 45 minutes to firm.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Heat the canola oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dredge the meatballs in the flour, and then brown the meatballs in batches until light brown. As they brown, place them into a rectangular baking dish.

For the sauce: Stir together the ketchup, onions, vinegar, sugar, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Drizzle the sauce evenly on the meatballs.

Bake until bubbly and hot, about 45 minutes.
