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. Meanwhile, add panko and 2 tbsp milk (dbl for 4 ppl) to a large bowl, then stir to combine. Set aside while you finish prep. 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.


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add beef, BBQ Seasoning, half the garlic, half the chives and remaining BBQ sauce to the bowl with panko mixture.. (TIP: If you prefer a firmer meatball, add an egg to the mixture!) Season with pepper, then combine. Roll beef mixture into 8 equal-sized meatballs (16 for 4 ppl). Arrange meatballs on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 10-12 min.**


Meanwhile, cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add broccoli and 2 tbsp water (dbl for 4 ppl). Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 4-5 min. Add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl) and remaining garlic. Cook, stirring often, until garlic is fragrant, 1 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.


When potatoes are fork-tender, drain and return potatoes to the same pot, off heat. Roughly mash 2 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, to taste. Cover to keep warm, then set aside.


When meatballs are done, use a slotted spoon to transfer meatballs to another large bowl. Drizzle BBQ sauce from the small bowl over meatballs, then toss to coat.


Divide garlicky broccoli and smashed potatoes between plates. Top potatoes with BBQ meatballs, then spoon any remaining sauce from the bowl over top. Sprinkle with remaining chives.
