Italian Beef Meatballs and Four Ways to Cook Meatballs

The March 2015 issue of Food Network Magazine features 50 Meatball recipes. Alex offered to help with meatball making so I figured why not start with recipe # 1 - Italian Beef Meatballs.  The meatballs turned out moist and very flavorful.

Below is the recipe and also I have included the four Ways to Cook Meatballs that they featured in the small inserted booklet.  So far our favorite method is baking.

# 1 – Italian Meatballs
Mix 1 pound of ground beef, ½ cup grated parmesan, ¼ cup each breadcrumbs, chopped Italian parsley and milk, 2 grated garlic cloves, 1 egg and 1 teaspoon kosher salt; season with pepper.  Form into 2 inch balls; bake.  Serve with your favorite marinara sauce.

Arrange on a parchment – lined baking sheet; bake at 425 degrees, about 15 minutes for 2-inch meatballs.

Arrange on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 5 to 8 minutes for 2-inch meatballs.

Cook, in batches, in 2 inches of 350 degrees vegetable oil, 3 to 6 minutes for 1-inch meatballs (small meatballs are best for deep-frying). 

Cook, in batches, in ½ cup vegetable oil over medium-high heat, turning, 8 to 10 minutes for 2-inch meatballs; pour off excess fat before adding any sauce.
