Quick and easy hand rolled, homemade baked meatballs simmered in a flavor forward sauce. Serve with rice for dinner or with toothpicks as a tasty appetizer at your next party!
Don't over mix the beef. Your hands are your best kitchen tools - use them to mix the ingredients until just combined. Over mixing the meat mixture will lead to tough, chewy meatballs - which should be avoided at all costs!
Along those same lines, don't pack the meatballs too tightly! This will also lead to tough, chewy meatballs. Be gentle yet firm when scooping and rolling your meatballs and you'll get a perfectly tender meatball every single time!
Coat your hands with vegetable oil or olive oil before rolling the meatballs into round balls. This will prevent the meat from sticking to your hands and will also help brown the outside of the meatball a little bit more.
Use a high quality, grass fed beef for better flavor. The better the beef, the better the flavor, so opt for a (preferably local) grass fed, high quality ground beef. The extra money you're spending is going to translate into a more flavorful dish.
