Beef Broth Concentrate
Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce. Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Combine potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (by approx. 1 inch) in a large pot (use same for 4 ppl.) Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered until fork-tender, 10-12 min. While potatoes cook, finely chop chives. Peel, then mince or grate garlic. Stir together broth concentrate, 3 tbsp BBQ sauce and 2 tbsp water (dbl both for 4 ppl) in a small bowl. Set aside.
Add beef, panko, BBQ Seasoning, half the garlic, half the chives and remaining BBQ sauce to a large bowl. Season with pepper, then combine. (TIP: If you prefer a firmer meatball, add an egg to the mixture!) Roll beef mixture into 8 equal-sized meatballs (16 for 4 ppl). Arrange meatballs on a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 10-12 min.**
While meatballs bake, cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then broccoli, remaining garlic and 2 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl). Stir to combine. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until tender, 5-6 min. Season with salt and pepper.
When potatoes are done, drain and return them to the same pot, off heat. Roughly mash 1 tbsp butter and 2 tbsp milk (dbl both for 4 ppl) into potatoes until slightly mashed. (NOTE: 'Smashed' potatoes will still have a few chunks!) Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
When meatballs are done, drizzle with BBQ sauce mixture from the small bowl, then toss to coat.
Divide garlicky broccoli and smashed potatoes between plates. Top potatoes with BBQ meatballs, then spoon over any remaining sauce from the baking sheet over tip. Sprinkle remaining chives.
