Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound Ground Beef
  • 1/4 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 egg whites or 1 whole egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano or other seasoned tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 pound small red-skinned potatoes (1-1/2 to 2-inch diameter), cut into quarters
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
  • Chopped fresh oregano (optional)

Cooking:

  1. Combine Ground Beef, bread crumbs, 1/4 cup cheese, egg whites, water, 1 clove garlic, salt and pepper in large bowl, mixing lightly but thoroughly. Shape into 12 two-inch meatballs. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place meatballs in skillet; cook 5 to 8 minutes or until browned on all sides.

  2. Add remaining 2 cloves garlic, tomatoes and potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes and until potatoes are tender. Uncover; continue simmering about 5 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.

    Cook's Tip: Cooking times are for fresh or thoroughly thawed Ground Beef. Ground Beef should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160°F. Color is not a reliable indicator of Ground Beef doneness.
  3. Sprinkle meatballs with cheese, if desired, before serving.
