Italian Meatballs

What you’ll need:

  • 1 lb. grass-fed ground beef or bison
  • 1 lb. turkey sausage (try a nitrate-free brand)
  • 1/2 c onion, finely chopped
  • 1/4 c almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1T. Italian seasoning
  • 1T. fresh basil, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 28 oz. Can organic crushed tomatoes (no sugar added)

 

How you make it:

    A super easy weeknight meal or stress-free dinner party meal –

  1. Mix all ingredients except tomatoes in a large bowl.
  2. Shape into golf ball-sized meatballs, adding a bit more almond flour by the tsp if your meatballs are too “wet” and tough to handle.
  3. Place in olive oil-greased crock to prevent sticking.
  4. Pour tomatoes over meatballs.
  5. Cover. Cook on Low for 6 hours, or HIGH for 4.  Best cooked low and slow!
  6. Serve with a  salad.
