Meatballs in Sauce

We love mom's meatball in dad's sauce. They go so well together. Just like mom and dad : ) The best part is, you can have two meals in one. Serve the meatballs with pasta for one night and make a meatballs sub with melted provolone on it the next day.

Since I have already shared dad's sauce recipe, the meatball part is really simple.

Mom's Meatball Recipe

1lb ground beef
1 large egg, beaten
1 tsp oregano
1/2 teaspoon of black pepper
1 cup of plain breadcrumb
5 tablespoon of grated parmesan or romano cheese

1. Place ground beef in a large bowl
2. Add in all the other ingredients.
3. Mix till well combined.
4. Separate into 15 meatballs. Shape by rolling in hands till round.
5. Heat a pan with 2 tablespoon of olive oil over medium high heat.
6. Once oil is hot, brown meatballs in batches. Drain well. Repeat till all meatballs are well browned.
7. Place meatballs in sauce. Let cook for 3 hours in sauce.
8. Served with pasta or in a sub.

Once the meatball has been properly formed, brown the meatball in a pan with some olive oil. It will take about 5-7 minutes to brown the meatball properly. It will still be raw in the center and that is fine. The cooking will be done simmered in dad's red sauce.

Drained the meatball well so that your sauce will not be greasy

At this point, just wait for the sauce to come up to a boil. Place the meatball in the sauce and let it simmer for 3 hours.

Served the meatball with pasta or on french baguette with melted provolone cheese.
