BEST Crockpot Meatballs
  • 2 pounds ground beef 85% lean (Or use meatloaf mix -beef, pork, veal combo)
  • 4 cloves garlic-roughly chopped, not minced
  • Handful parsley (optional-my kids don't like it though)
  • 1 cup bread crumbs (Can use Aleia's gluten free brand or Target makes a great bread crumb!)
  • 1 cup shredded Pecorino Romano cheese (not grated)
  • 2 eggs
  • salt to taste
  • Sauce of your choice (one 24-oz jars) (I like to use Rao's!)
  • 1 -28 ounce box or can crushed tomatoes
  1. Mix all of the meatball ingredients and form your meatballs-not too large.
  2. Pour 3-4 Tablespoons oil in a skillet and fry meatballs to brown on all sides.
  3. Pour one can crushed tomatoes in crockpot
  4. Transfer meatballs to the crockpot.
  5. Pour jar of sauce over the meatballs and cook on low for 6 hours.
  6. If any oil pools to the top, use a large spoon to discard it.
  7. Serve right away or refrigerate for another night.
