What You'll Need
  • 1.5 pounds beef- I like grass fed best
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs or grated parm cheese
  • 8 cubes of mozzerella
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  1. Mix everything except the mozzarella & tomato sauce together. Roll mixture into 8 balls. Push one 1" cube of mozzarella into the center of each ball. Pour tomato sauce into saute pan, add meatballs, cover and cook for 15 minutes on med-high heat. Roll occasionally.
  2. The cheese in the center will melt and the oil will make the meatballs VERY moist and juicy. Also, the problem of a raw center is gone and the meatballs cook quicker than with out the cheese center. Serve with pasta and your choice of red sauce.
