Today is international meatball day or something like that? I can't keep up with all these random holidays, but what an opportune time to share this lovely recipe! ;) This is one of our favorite 30 minute dinners but we also LOVE to make it for lunch. I make it on Sunday as part of our meal prep, then divide it into 3 portions in separate tupperware. How easy is that? All Brian has to do is grab one of the containers and lunch is ready to go! Plus this saves SO much time. I can't believe I used to pack everyone separate lunches every. single. night. Whether you're making this for lunch or dinner, it's flavorful, filling, and super simple. That's my kind of recipe. ;)
Prep time: 5 minutes | Cook time: 25 minutes | Total tine: 30 minutes | Serves: 3
- 1 TBSP EVOO
- 3 red potatoes, chopped
- 1/2 cup yellow onion, diced
- 8 oz baby bella mushrooms, sliced
- 1 lb ground meat (we used beef)
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
- 1 TBSP garlic powder
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp sea salt and pepper
- Lightly grease a large skillet with olive oil and place on medium high heat.
- Chop the potatoes in half then cut each half into quarters. Dice the onion and slice the mushrooms. Set aside for the next step.
- Mix ground beef, dried rosemary, garlic powder, egg, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Roll into about 9 meatballs.
- Add the meatballs in a single layer to the heated skillet. Add the potatoes to the skillet at this time as well. Brown the meatballs on each side (about 2-3 minutes each side).
- After the meatballs have a nice golden brown color to each side, reduce the heat to a simmer and add the onions and mushrooms. Cover and cook for 15- 18 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- When the potatoes, onions, and mushrooms are fork-tender and no pink remains in the meatballs, remove the skillet from the heat and serve. Tip: serve with a side of asparagus or a broccoli salad to get some greens in and make it a balanced meal!
- Buy ethically raised meat when possible. It's important to buy meat from animals raised on a grass fed diet without antibiotics or hormones.
- This recipe serves 2-3 people- double the recipe if needed.
