Italian Meatballs Easy Recipe - (Italian Food)

Ingredients:  - (Meatball Mix)

1 pound round steak
1/2 pound lean pork (ground fine)
1 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup cheese (shredded fine)
1 small onion (grated)
2 eggs (slightly beaten)
1 tablespoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon ground sage (optional)

Sauce:

1 small can tomatoes (mashed)
1 cup water
1 onion (diced)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt

Directions:

Mix all ingredients for meatballs thoroughly and form into small balls. Roll in flour and put into the pan. Mix all ingredients for the sauce and cook for 5 minutes. Pour sauce over meatballs and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

Thoughts On Italian Meatballs:

Meatballs automatically go with pasta of some kind right? This easy Italian Meatball recipe is one you will enjoy eating for sure. The sauce is out of this world too. You might have noticed in the recipe that ground sage is optional. I love the taste of sage but if you don't like it as much you can easily leave it out. I like spaghetti noodles when I eat meatballs because that is what I am used to and it is most traditional here in America. I would say that any pasta will do.

Extra Information:

It is commonly thought that meatballs were invented by Italians and they brought the recipe to America when they immigrated in the late 1880's and early 1900's. According to history, the earliest known origin of meatballs comes from Rome. You can learn more about the meatballs by visiting Escoffier's post on Bringing Spaghetti And Meatballs To America.

A Question For You:

Do you like pasta with your meatballs? What kind of past do you like? Do you like grated cheese on top? Every time I visit Olive Garden I love to watch the server grate the cheese over the pasta. Also, did you miss my last recipe? It has beef and pasta in it. It is called Beef Stroganoff Biscuit Casserole in case you missed it.

Personal Thoughts For Today:

I wanted to share a food story from last Tuesday. It was a pretty good day as far as Tuesdays go. My employer rewarded us by feeding us lunch that day. As I work in a wood product manufacturing facility, we have a record of safety throughout the year. We have gone a whole year without any recordable incidents and that was cause for celebration.

I Love TACOS TAQUERIA food truck

Do you like food trucks? It seems that food trucks are really popular lately and there are many to choose from in our area. With the warmer weather, the restaurants really increase their revenue by going out into the communities and serving customers where they are. They may set up in retail parking lots, festivals, or even in front of their own restaurant location. Most of the trucks are decorated nicely and catch the eye with bright colors and graphics. I just love some of the catchy names these businesses have.

We didn't have to pay for our food when the food truck came. Our company paid for the food and I was very happy to get it. I was hungry and I was craving Mexican food. I decided to get the steak burrito. You can tell from the picture I shared here that the burrito was really big. Look at it in comparison to the can of Dr Pepper. It was really good! The burrito came with chips and salsa. After I ate everything and I had to go back to work, It took me an hour or two to feel normal again. My feet felt like steak burritos. They were so heavy and all I wanted to do was take a nap. If my employer is reading this they will be happy to know I did not take a nap. I went back to work and worked very hard.
