Instructions
  1. Add the minced beef, breadcrumbs, onion, eggs, chili powder and salt into a bowl, and mix until well combined. Portion the meatballs into 1-inch balls (about 30 grams each) in diameter.
  2. Heat a medium non-stick skillet over medium heat, and add the cooking oil. Add the meatballs and sear them until they develop a brown crust. Then add in water, vinegar and barbecue sauce, and stir. When the mixture starts to bubble, turn the heat down to low and simmer the meatballs for 10 minutes.
  3. Serve 4 balls to one bread roll with spinach.
