In a saute pan or skillet, add oil and cook meatballs in batches on medium heat turning on all sides.
Remove meatballs from the pan and set aside.
To the same pan, add the stock, cook for 2 minute son medium-low heat, deglazing the pan as you cook.
Then, add the red wine, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar - cook for 2 minutes until almost reduced to half.
Now, add the butter and continue to cook a minute until all the butter is melted and the sauce looks glossy.
Finally, return the meatballs back to the pan and cook for 5 minutes until the sauce is reduced to about half.
Make sure to turn the meatballs around so they coat evenly with the sauce.
The sauce gets thicker as it cools.
