MAKE THE MEATBALLS

1. Preheat oven to 400°.

2. In a large bowl, whisk breadcrumbs, grated onion, parsley, egg, garlic, salt and pepper. Add beef and pork; gently mix to combine. Using about 2 tablespoons of the mixture for each, form into about 48 meatballs. Place on a baking sheet. Bake until just cooked through, 25 to 28 minutes.
 

MAKE THE SAUCE
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add chopped onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes. Add chopped garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 30 seconds. Pour in stout and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 5 minutes. Stir in ketchup, mustard and vinegar. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Add the meatballs and turn to coat in the sauce.
