*image from The Pioneer Woman*


For Christmas last year my mother in law gave me The Pioneer Woman’s Cookbook….

Amazing recipes that my husband (the die-hard meat and potato man) LOVES!

This woman cooks for her four kids, husband and numerous cowboys. She knows what she is talking about!!

One of our new favorite recipes is her BBQ Meatball recipe (click for the link!) and although her version is fabulous, I have changed one thing.

Instead of browning the meatballs and then baking it all…I just pop my meatballs in boiling water.

Yes, you heard me right.

I learned this trick a long time ago from I can’t remember where. And I love it.

Really and truly you boil a pot of water, roll up your meatballs however you normally make them (salt/pepper/egg/oatmeal/etc) and then just gently drop them into the pot of boiling water! After the last meatball is in, set the timer for 7 minutes and ta da!

Your meatballs are cooked and a lot of the fat floats to the top making them that much more healthy! (Good ol’ red meat!)

Make sure you watch the pot…has a tendency to boil over…not fun. And I ladle the fat off the top as it boils.

Then I just finish the rest of the meatball recipe…yummy!!

Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think! I’m pretty sure it’ll be a hit for dinner!
