Why I Love This Recipe

Thanks so much to Yvette’s sister-in-law Lisa Herrinton for cooking and photographing the meatballs!

Lisa suggests browning the meatballs before adding them to the tomato sauce.

Ingredients You'll Need

Meatball Ingredients:
1/2 lb ground round
1/2 lb chuck
1 good-sized onion, chopped or grated
2 eggs
Oatmeal, matzo meal, bread, crackers, etc.

Sauce Ingredients:
1 can tomato sauce
1 large stalk celery


Form meatballs by combining and meat, onion, eggs, garlic, and paprika.

Add enough crumbs or oats to bind meatballs, but not so much that they’re dry.

Roll meatballs.

Combine one can tomato sauce, pepper, and celery tops in about 1 inch of water.

Add one layer meatballs to boiling sauce, cook until firm.

Remove and put in another layer.

Return all meatballs and simmer until tender.
