    Bobby Flay's Meatball and Sauce Recipe

    With a combination of 3 meats in a homemade marinara sauce, these tender meatballs are full of savory flavor that will put any pasta dish over the top.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 15 minutes
        •    Cook time: 40 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 20


        •   1/2 pound ground beef
        •   1/2 pound ground pork
        •   1/2 pound ground veal
        •   2 large eggs lightly beaten
        •   1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
        •   4 cloves garlic finely chopped and sautéed
        •   1/4 cup breadcrumbs
        •   1/4 cup parsley finely chopped
        •   Salt and freshly ground pepper
        •   1 cup olive oil

    Homemade Sauce:

        •   2 tablespoons olive oil
        •   1 Spanish onion finely chopped
        •   4 cloves garlic finely chopped
        •   56 oz. canned plum tomatoes and their juice pureed in a blender
        •   1 bay leaf
        •   1 bunch parsley
        •   1 pinch red pepper flakes
        •   Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
        •   6 basil leaves sliced into strips



    1. Combine all ingredients, (except the oil), in a large bowl until well-combined. Roll into 1+1/2 inch balls.
    2. Heat the oil in a large sautee pan or dutch oven over medium heat and add the meatballs. Let them fry, cooking on each side until lightly browned, but not cooked all the way through. About 10-15 minutes.
    3. Add the meatballs to tomato sauce and let them simmer on medium low heat for about 45 minutes.

    Homemade Sauce:

    1. In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil on medium heat. Add the onions and garlic until they’re softened, about 5 minutes.
    2. Add the pureed tomatoes and juice, the bay leaf, parsley, red pepper flakes, salt, and pepper.
    3. Bring the sauce to a boil, reduce the heat back down to a light simmer, and add the meatballs.
    4. Cover the pot and let them simmer for 40 minutes.
    5. Remove the bay leaf and parsley prior to serving and mix in the basil. Serve, and enjoy!


        •    Use enough oil to cover about 1/3 of the meatball. You can use less than the cup that is indicated in the recipe.

        •    You can substitute the veal and/or pork with ground beef or ground turkey if preferred.

        •    To serve with pasta, combined with 1 lb. of spaghetti. This is also great with a side of garlic bread!

    Southern-Style Sausage Stew

    Dive into this hearty, herby and healthy recipe. The brown rice is great for keeping blood sugar levels steady, and it will also fill you up really well. Ripe, juicy tomatoes are bursting with vitamin C to keep the whole body ticking over, and the green pepper provides a dose of vitamin E, which helps your immune system stay strong. I've specified pork & oregano sausages here because they give the flavour a real boost. But, if you can't get hold of them, regular higher-welfare pork sausages are fine to use.

    Prep Time

        •    Prep time: 10 minutes
        •    Cook time: 40 minutes
        •    Yield: Serves 2


        •   olive oil
        •   4 higher-welfare pork & oregano sausages
        •   1 onion
        •   1 stick of celery
        •   1 green pepper
        •   2 cloves of garlic
        •   150 g brown rice
        •   1 teaspoon smoked paprika
        •   1 fresh green chilli
        •   1 organic vegetable stock cube or pot
        •   200 g ripe tomatoes
        •   1 tablespoon plain flour
        •   1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
        •   2 spring onions


    1. Fill a medium pan with salted water, place on a high heat and bring to the boil.
    2. Heat a splash of oil in a medium deep sided pan on a medium heat. Prick the sausages with a fork and and cook for 10 minutes, or until browned on all sides, turning regularly.
    3. Meanwhile, peel and trim the onion and celery. Halve and deseed the pepper, removing the core and stalk, then chop everything into 1cm chunks. Peel, crush and roughly chop the garlic.
    4. Add the rice to the boiling water and cook for 25 minutes, or until tender. Drain in a sieve, then tip back into the warm pan. Cover with a lid and set aside off the heat.
    5. When the sausages are nicely browned, remove from the pan. There should be a little fat left at the bottom of the pan. Add enough oil to make this up to 1 tablespoon, then add the vegetables, garlic and paprika.
    6. Halve, deseed and finely chop the chilli, then add to the pan. Cover with a lid and cook on a medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes, or until soft.
    7. Meanwhile, boil the kettle. Dissolve the stock cube in a jug with 350ml of boiling water. Roughly chop the tomatoes and put to one side.
    8. Sprinkle the flour over the veg, then stir before adding the tomatoes, vinegar, sausages and stock, then bring to the boil.
    9. Squash the tomatoes into the sauce with a wooden spoon, then simmer for 10 minutes, or until you have a nice thick sauce around the sausages.
    10. Meanwhile, trim and finely slice the spring onions. When the stew is ready, taste and season with sea salt and black pepper. Divide the stew and rice between plates, scatter with spring onions, then serve.
