Meatballs are a great source of protein. I know because I have allergies that my doctor recommends eating meat to replace that protein, so if you’re okay with that this is great to have once every week or 2 weeks. You can also put these in spaghetti, which is delicious, and that recipe is listed in the Dinner page if you want to check that out. Turmeric powder is absolutely optional in this recipe, and it has no taste so you won’t be able to tell. However, it has amazing health benefits, like antioxidants.
1 cup of ground beef
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp of lemon juice
½ tsp of red pepper
½ tsp of oregano
½ tsp of garlic powder
Optional: ½ tsp of turmeric powder
Mix it all the ingredients in the ground beef
My family is not afraid to get messy, so we mix with our hands. You can use a mixing tool of course, but I think using your hands is easier.
Roll the mixture into small balls (standard size is the size of a golf ball)
Spray your pan with a nonstick spray and put all the meatballs in
Cook on low heat until the meatballs turn dark brown. It takes about 10-12 minutes.
Take the meatballs out of the pan, pour the liquid out of the pan, and put the meatballs back in the pan. If you aren't using sauce, you don't need to do this step. If you are, follow this step, and then the directions below:
Optional: Add tomato sauce of your choice into the pan.
Cook for a few minutes and mix so the meatballs get coated in sauce.
Don't worry if yours look a little different. The picture is my mom's but the recipe is my grandma's and you and I might use different sauces, so things may be slightly different, but don't worry. Everything always turns out delicious:)
