0 Basic Meatball Recipe

Here's a simple, healthy meatball recipe. The blend of ground beef and pork combines the taste of red meat with the light healthy flavor of pork, while the fresh ingredients that accentuate those flavors.

1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
5 leaves basil ( or about 1 tbsp dried basil)
1/2 of a medium yellow onion (a little bit less than half if it is a large onion)
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp Worcester sauce
1 tbsp ketchup
Salt and pepper

1. Dice the basil, onion and garlic.
2. Place all of the ingredients into a bowl. Mix with your hands until the mix is fully incorporated.
3. Start a pan on the stove top over medium heat, with a tablespoon of oil in the pan.
4. Roll the mixture into 1 inch diameter balls, and cook in the pan for approximately 8 minutes, moving the meatballs often to minimize sticking and for even cooking.

Let the meatballs rest, and use in your favorite pasta dish such as spaghetti or macaroni and cheese.
