Everyone has their own favorite version, this one happens to be mine!
1-1/2 – 2 lbs Ground Beef 80/20%
1 Green Bell Pepper finely chopped
1 Medium Onion finely chopped
4-6 Cloves Garlic minced
¾ Cup Bread Crumbs
1 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
2 Tablespoons Dried Parsley
1 Tablespoon Onion Powder
1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper
In a large bowl, combine ground beef, finely chopped peppers & onions, minced garlic, bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic & onion powder, parsley, and a pinch of salt & pepper. In a separate small bowl, crack the 2 eggs and mix well with a fork, then add to beef mixture. With hands, combine mixture. Roll into approx. 2” balls. Preheat large non-stick skillet med – med high heat. Add a couple tablespoons of oil. Brown meatballs on all sides until they have a nice crust. At this point, you could either transfer meatballs into an already made preheated sauce or leave in a 350 deg oven for 10 mins to let them cook through.
