BBQ Sauce(ContainsSulphites/Sulfite, Mustard/Moutarde)
Beef Broth Concentrate
Salt and Pepper*
Preheat the oven to 450°F (to bake meatballs). Start prepping when the oven comes up to temperature!
Wash and dry all produce.* Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. In a large pot, combine potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (approximately 1 inch). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, until potatoes are fork-tender, 10-12 min. Meanwhile, peel, then mince or grate garlic. Finely chop chives.
In a large bowl, combine beef, panko, half the garlic, half the chives and 1 tbsp BBQ seasoning. Season with salt and pepper. Roll beef mixture into equal 2-inch sized meatballs (you should have 16). Transfer meatballs to a foil-lined baking sheet. Bake in middle of oven until cooked through, 10-12 min. (TIP: Cook to a min. internal temp. of 71°C/160°F, as size may vary.**)
Meanwhile, cut stems off green beans, if needed, then cut in half. Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then beans and remaining garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper.
When potatoes are fork-tender, drain and return them to the same pot, off heat. Using a potato masher, mash 2 tbsp butter and 1/4 cup milk into potatoes until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
Meanwhile, in another large bowl, whisk together BBQ sauce, broth concentrates and 1/4 cup water. Set aside. When meatballs are finished cooking, transfer to BBQ sauce mixture. Stir together, until meatballs are fully coated with sauce.
Divide mashed potatoes between plates. Top with BBQ meatballs, spooning over any remaining sauce from the bowl. Sprinkle remaining chives over meatballs. Serve garlicky green beans alongside.
