Meatballs are one of the most versatile sources of proteins whenever we don’t need to go heavy on meat. They are meaty but give us the real satisfaction of a great meal without the overwhelming feeling. So, in this article, we will share a super delicious, juicy, and spicy meatball recipe that will tantalize your senses!
The best thing about this recipe is that we will use homemade meatballs instead of pre-made ones. Freshly made meatballs will be sauced up in a decadent tomato gravy to bring you the goodness of a complete home-cooked meal. Let’s get started!
Super Flavorful Spicy Meatball Recipe
Our irresistible spicy meatball recipe comes out wonderfully because we will combine beef and pork. The sauce we’re making has spices and a creamy base which is ideal to enjoy with pasta, spaghetti, rice-you name it!
If you wish to make a bigger batch of meatballs, this recipe is a great one to make ahead of time as you can freeze them uncooked or cooked. To freeze, first arrange the rolled meatballs as a single layer on a lined baking sheet, cover loosely with a cling wrap, and then freeze for a few hours until solid. Then, put them in a ziplock freezer bag and freeze for up to three months. The frozen meatballs should be thawed in the refrigerator overnight before cooking. Reheat or cook them as desired!
If not incorporating them with the tomato sauce in this recipe, you can simmer with marinara sauce, incorporate the uncooked meatballs with any soup you like, pour warm barbeque sauce over the cooked meatballs and serve as an appetizer, use cooked, chopped meatballs as a pizza topping in calzones or place the cooked meatballs with tomato sauce in hoagie rolls, top with mozzarella cheese, and broil to have decadent meatball subs!
We have included bread when making the meatballs, which makes it unsuitable for keto dieters. But you may still use rolled oats or almond flour instead of the bread to get the desired texture and make them keto-friendly.
We have not included any gluten-related ingredients in our recipe. Therefore, this dish is a favorable option for those who follow a gluten-free diet or those with Celiac issues.
