Homemade Delicious Meatballs
This is a recipe I created after a few times of hit or miss. Finally, this is the recipe that appeals most to my family and I hope that yours will like it too!
Family pack ground beef
Cinnamon - just a sprinkle
Grated parmesan cheese – 2-3 tablespoons
Bread crumbs ½ - 1 cup
2 eggs, beaten
2 – 15 oz. cans of tomato sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
To make the meatballs:
Combine ground beef, salt, pepper, parsley, garlic powder, cinnamon, eggs, parmesan cheese and bread crumbs. Shape into balls and set aside. The size of the meatball depends. If the meatballs are the main dish, I shape them into the size of a golf ball. If they are going to be served with other foods, I make the meatballs slightly smaller.
To make the sauce:
In a large pot, put the olive oil, a little water, salt, pepper, parsley, garlic powder and cinnamon. Stir until heated.
Add the meatballs and let cook for a little while, covered.
Add the tomato sauce and about a can of water to the pot.
Cook covered for approximately one hour, until done.
Enjoy! Serve with your favorite pasta and salad!
