  • 1
    Mix all of the meatball ingredients together and form your meatballs.
  • 2
    Heat a large frying pan with a little oil and gently, one by one, add in the meatballs. After they cook for about 4 minutes, flip the meatballs and cook an additional 4 minutes. Once they're cooked on the outside, they should be a little less delicate. Making sure none are stuck to the bottom, start tossing them in the pan a little more to cook them evenly. Drain most of the fat, leaving a few tablespoons worth in the pan.
  • 3
    Add 2 tablespoons of water to deglaze the pan, scraping up any stuck on pieces. Add the brown sugar, adding a little more water if it looks too dry. It should start to bubble and look like dark caramel.
  • 4
    Remove from heat and add in the BBQ sauce. Stir well. Serve and top with the chives.
