Ingredients

  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 1/2 pounds Ground Beef
  • 1 cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 inch Olive Oil
  • 64 oz Tomato Sauce

Directions

  1. Take off your rings and wash your hands - all mixing with your hands.
  2. Mix meat and eggs in bowl.
  3. Slowly add bread crumbs, you want to mix in enough to see it fully dispersed throughout the mixture, the bread crumbs keep the meatballs from being too dense.
  4. Keep your faucet on, water should be warmer than room temperature to allow bread crumbs to expand.
  5. Add oil to pan and slowly bring to high temperature.
  6. Take 64 oz. Of your favorite tomato sauce and slowly heat to boil, reduce flame to simmer while continuing to mix, slowly add water.
  7. You know you have added enough water when the mixture is no longer refrigerator cold, and the consistency is bouncy.
  8. Make meatballs into 1 to 1 1/2 inch balls.
  9. Lower flame on pan.
  10. Slowly add meatballs, turning frequently to brown on all sides.
  11. Place browned meatballs in tomato sauce, bring to boil and reduce to simmer for 45 minutes, mix frequently to avoid burning.
