Serving Size: 2
Total Time:

These meatballs are packed with flavor and served in a tangy, garlicky tomato sauce. Crunchy green beans and hearty potatoes stand up nicely to this flavorful favorite.


  • 12 Ounce ground beef
  • 1 tsp fresh oregano
  • 1 Can crushed tomatoes
  • 0.5 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 0.25 cup panko
  • 0.5 Ounce parsley
  • 0.5 red onion
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 8 Ounce baby new potatoes
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil


  1. Trim the ends of the green beans and halve. Quarter the potatoes. Mince the onion, parlsey, and garlic.
  2. Fill a pot with water and add the potatoes and a pinch of salt. Place over high heat. Once it comes to a boil, cook for 15 minutes, until you can easily pierce them with a knife. During the last minute of cooking, add the green beans. Drain and set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the beef, panko, cheese, half the chopped onion, salt and pepper. With wet hands, form the meatballs into the size of ping pong balls.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoon oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Sear the meatballs until browned, about 3 minutes.
  5. Add the potatoes, tomatoes, green beans, garlic, and oregano. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until the meatballs are cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Finish: Serve in a bowl with the remaining onion and parsley on top!
