Allen’s son, Tyree called me a few days ago asking for our recipe for Sunday Sauce. He’s planning to cook for a group of about 15 people this week, and he was adamant that I also include instructions on how to make the meatballs that go with the delicious sauce. It occurred to me that I don’t actually have the meatball recipe, as it exists only inside Allen’s head. Wanting very much to help Tyree out, I patiently sat and transcribed the recipe as Allen dictated it to me at home that evening.
It turns out the recipe is really very simple and I decided to share it here (below).
The recipe for Sunday Sauce can be found on my July 22, 2012 post entitled:
1 lb hamburger
1 small yellow onion
2 to 3 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup panko whole wheat bread crumbs
teaspoon of milk
2 to 3 tablespoons grated parmesan
salt and pepper to taste
1. Combine all ingredients, but don’t over mix
2. You should get 12 – 15 small meatballs (less if you make large ones)
3. Brown the meatballs in cast iron skillet (2 -3 mins on all sides)
4. Add to sauce for the last hour of cooking
