Slow Cooker Meatballs with Marinara Sauce
*1 ib ground beef
*1/2 small onion, finely chopped
*2 garlic cloves, minced
*(optional)1 TBS Penzey’s Beef Roast Seasoning
This is my go to spice mix for meatballs, meat loafs, beef tips and so much more. You do not have to use this, instead 1/2 tsp. thyme, 1 tsp. sweet paprika and 1/2 tsp. marjoram
*1 tsp. dried parsley
*1/2 tsp. dried sage
*1/2 tsp. salt, or more to taste
*1.2 tsp cracked pepper, or more to taste
*1/4 C. Parmesan cheese; finely grated + more for garnish
*1/3 C. bread crumbs
*1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
*1 jar marinara sauce
Add all of the ingredients, except for marinara sauce, in a large bowl. Lightly mix until combined, But don’t over mix or the meatballs will become tough. Form into balls.
Preheat the broiler.
Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with no stick spray. This makes clean up a little easier. Place the meat balls on to the baking sheet. Broil for about 8 minutes, turn them over and broil for about another 8 minutes.
Place the meatballs into the slow cooker. Pour the marinara sauce over the meatballs.
Cover and cook on low for 5 hours.
Sprinkle a little Parmesan over the top before serving.
