1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 tbsp freshly chopped oregano

1 can of crushed tomatoes

1 tbsp Briggs True Texas Seasoning & Rub


1 1/2 lbs grass feed ground beef

1/2 cup bread crumbs

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

2 tbsp freshly chopped parsley

4 cloves garlic, minced

1 large egg

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

1/3 cup shredded mozzarella

1/3 cup Freshly grated Parmesan cheese


1Preheat oven to 375°. Make sauce: In a large pot over low heat, heat 1/4 cup oil. Add garlic, oregano, and stir, making sure not to overcook it, 1 minute. Add tomatoes and season with Briggs True TX Seasoning. Let simmer while you make meatballs.

2Make meatballs: In a large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, Parmesan, parsley, garlic, egg, and red pepper flakes and season with salt and pepper. Mix until fully combined, then form into 15 meatballs, about 2” in diameter.

3Place meatballs in an even layer in a 9”-x-13” baking dish. Bake 20 minutes, then add sauce and sprinkle all over with cheeses. Return to oven 12 to 15 minutes more, until cheese is melty and meatballs are cooked through. Garnish with parmesan and basil and serve.
