Start the vegetables
On a lined sheet pan, toss the potatoes with a drizzle of oil; season with ½ the spice blend and S&P. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast, stirring halfway through, 14 to 16 minutes, until beginning to brown.

Prepare the meatballs
While the potatoes roast, in a large bowl, combine the ground beef, shallot and ½ the chives; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Gently mix to combine. Using your hands, form the mixture into 16 meatballs about the size of a golf ball.

Finish the vegetables
Remove the sheet pan of potatoes from the oven. Add the mushrooms, string beans and ½ the garlic; drizzle with oil and season with S&P. Stir to coat evenly. Rearrange the vegetables in a single, even layer and return to the oven to roast, 10 to 12 minutes, until browned and tender.

Cook the meatballs
While the vegetables roast, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the meatballs* and cover partially; cook, turning over occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, until browned on all sides and cooked through. Add the BBQ sauce, demi-glace, remaining garlic, 2 tbsp water and 1 tbsp butter. Cook, spooning the sauce over the meatballs, 2 to 3 minutes, until nicely coated.

Plate your dish
