A delicious and healthy Garlic Meat Balls in Tomato Sauce Recipe that I tried out last night.
8 tomatos, 1 large red onion, fresh basil, parmesan, paprika, cumin, garlic salt, pepper, extra virgin olive oil, honey, chicken broth (1 cup), lots of garlic,
4lbs of ground extra lean beaf (makes about 24 meatballs).
LOTS of cloves of garlic.
Make small balls out of the ground beef –
Preheat a non stick frying pan on a medium heat and add about 2tblsp of olive oil. Saute the meatballs in batches until they turn brown and are cooked inside. I always covered the frying pan with a lid just for a few minutes.
This pot is full of golden meat balls! Cover them and set aside.
Chop roughly the onion.
Use about 8 small garlic cloves, 1tsp of cumin, 1tsp of paprika.
Preheat a medium size sauce pan over medium heat, add about 2 tbsp of olive oil and saute the onion until lightly browned. Add the cumin, paprika and thinly chopped garlic and saute for another 2 minutes.
Chop all of the tomatos.
Add the tomatos into the sauce pan and mix it well with the onions.
Add 1 cup of chicken broth into the pot with the tomatos.
Add about 2 tbsp of honey. Cook the tomatos until they get completely soft and turn into a sauce.
Grade the parmesan cheese (about 2 handfuls) and add it to the pot.
The last thing to add is the fresh basil. Add as much as you like
Put some meat balls on your plate and pour the tomato sauce over the top. Garnish with shredded parmesan cheese and basil leave if you feel fancy.
