Home Made Meatball Recipe

There’s nothing like a great batch of home made meatballs!

I’m not Italian, so I don’t want any hate mail saying I “didn’t’ do it right”. I’m German/Dutch so my meatballs have a Nordic flair to them, mixed with Canadian-ish flair.

The nice thing about this recipe is it’s good for one meal, and then freeze for another meal.

Ingredients:

  • 1 kg. Lean beef
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 cup mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons Montreal Steak Spice
  • 1 tablespoon Franks RedHot
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup crumbs (I use organic, sprouted grain crackers pounded into oblivion)
  • 2 eggs

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine beef and all ingredients. NOTE: Please chop finely as they need to incorporate, if the chunks are too big your meatballs will become meat patties or at worse, a pan of crumbles.
  3. Using your hands, squish all that up until everything is 100% incorporated together.
  4. Make small balls; I make mine approximately 1 1/2 inches in diameter, so when they cook down they are perfect bite sizes balls.
  5. Using a stoneware pan, or baking sheet with parchment, line meatballs on pan. You do not need to leave much room between as they will shrink.
  6. Bake in the oven for 45 – 1 hour. Depending on where you live and altitude this could take longer or shorter: check at the 30 minute mark. If they’re bubbling clear liquid and are toasty brown they’re done.
