Meatballs that combine both ground beef and pulled pork = Dirty Meatballs (a.k.a the best kind of meatballs).
Tender pulled pork is stuffed into these bite-size meatballs and then they’re coated in an irresistible sweet and spicy barbecue sauce. Served with roasted potatoes and plenty of barbecue sauce on the side for dipping, this has been my boys’ favorite meal for the past couple weeks.
Inspired by the Filthy Burgers that we made last summer, these Sweet and Spicy Dirty Meatballs are everything I love about pulled pork in a bite-size meatball. The bits of pork along the edge of the meatball get a little bit crispy, the inside stays juicy and the whole thing is coated in a sticky sweet and spicy barbecue sauce.
I highly recommend you set aside a bit of pulled pork next time you have it in the house, because these meatballs are an excellent way to make the most of the leftovers.
