  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb. ground pork
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs or Japanese panko
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 small onion, finely chopped
  • Pinch of red-pepper flakes
  • 1 can (28 oz.) whole peeled tomatoes, pureed
  • 4 fresh basil leaves, optional
  • 8 oz fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced


Using your hands, gently mix together the pork, beef, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, salt, eggs, garlic, and parsley in a large bowl. Form mixture into 2-inch balls.

Heat the oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs; cook, turning, until browned all over, about 10 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a plate.

Reduce the heat to medium. Add onion and pepper flakes; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is tender. Add the tomatoes and basil; simmer, stirring frequently, until the sauce is slightly thickened. Return the meatballs and its juices to pan. Simmer, turning meatballs until cooked through.

Heat the broiler and arrange the mozzarella cheese on top of the meatballs. Broil until melted, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
