Do you enjoy a good meatball sub? Well, try my recipe. It’s homemade and very easy.
Ingredients – 2 lbs. lean ground beef, 1 cup bread crumbs, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 2 eggs, 2 tsp. salt, 1 tbsp. dried parsley, 2 tsp. black pepper, 2 tsp. garlic powder and 2 tsp. onion powder.
1 extra large can of tomato sauce, 1 large can of tomato paste, 2 tbsp Italian seasoning and 1/2 cup sugar.
In a large greased pot, mix sauce ingredients and place on a low heat.
Combine meatball ingredients and form into 2-inch diameter meatballs. Roll in flour and set aside. Heat olive oil in a large skillet. When oil is hot, brown meatballs until crispy on every side. Then place into sauce and cook on low for a few hours. (If meatballs are not completely done inside while frying, they will heat throughout once in the sauce.)
For a six-inch sub (Italian or French bread), place two meatballs and extra sauce into sliced bread and add a piece of Mozzarella cheese. Place in the oven on broil for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and browned.
Serve hot and enjoy!
