Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 lb. 93% Lean ground beef
    1/2 cup dry Bread Crumbs
    1/2 cup chopped Onion
    1/4 cup chopped Green Pepper
    1 Egg
    1 1/2 tsp. Salt
    1 tsp. ground black Pepper
    1 tsp. Ground Savory

Directions

Mix meat, bread crumbs, egg, onion, green pepper, salt and pepper together. Toss it together lightly, don't squish it too tightly.

Form into the balls: 16 large balls for spaghetti feeds 2 balls per person 32 small balls for appetizers feeds 4 balls per person.

Put into a large (preferably non-stick) frying pan with 1/2" water. Cover tightly and let them steam for about 15 minutes over medium heat until all the water is evaporated. If water evaporates too quickly, add a couple more tablespoons, just to get the meatballs cooked through. Then let them brown slightly for another 5 minutes. They are kind of fragile and light. Serve with spaghetti sauce and noodles or serve as appetizers.

Number of Servings: 8

  • This was super easy and fast! They're not the best meat balls I've ever had - but the lean meat is most likely what is changing the taste. I would cook them again for myself, but would not serve them to guests. - 11/21/11

    could you please add amounts of each ingredient. This is tough to make if you have no idea how much of each ingredient to add. - 10/12/09
