Smile Re: How do YOU make meatballs?

BUT, when you cook the meatballs in the sauce, aren't you getting all the fat & grease when you eat???

If you use 93% beef, there isn't much fat to drain off. Yeah, you get it, but maybe that's why it tastes better. Seriously though, when you cook in a frying pan first or whatever, you're still cooking in the fat.

Re: How do YOU make meatballs?

I cook mine in the sauce too, we saw Emeril doing that - makes a huge difference in the meatballs, they are alot more moist that way. I buy the 93% lean.

I don't just use plain ground beef...I use a mixture of ground up beef, pork and veal ground up then add salt, pepper, basil, oregona, garlic powder, eggs, and breadcrumbs. Yummy!

Re: How do YOU make meatballs?

I usually just add a packet of liptons onion soup mix to ground beef and then precook them in the oven. They are still really tasty and its super easy to do.

Re: How do YOU make meatballs?

I'm going to try cooking some in the sauce next time. Thanks for the tip!

Do you brown in a skillet first and then put in the sauce? How many hours do they need to simmer in the sauce before being completely done?

I use half beef and half turkey. Basil, oregano, fresh parsley, salt and pepper, minced garlic, minced onion, italian breadcrumbs, an egg white, just a touch of liquid smoke (just a touch!!), and some red pepper flakes. I brown in the oven and then put them in the sauce.
