Slow Cooked Beef & Brown Rice Meatballs

Need an easy meatball recipe? These came out so well. My children even liked them.

You need:

  • 1lb lean ground beef ( I have also done this with ground turkey and it came out just as good).
  • about 1 cup cooked rice ( I used brown rice)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 jar of your favorite tomato sauce ( I love tomato basil flavor)

Very simple: mix ground beef, rice, and egg in a medium bowl.  Feel free to add seasoning but it is not needed, as it slow cooks, the sauce really gives the meatballs flavor. Pour about half the sauce in the bottom of your crock pot. Then roll meatballs into your desired size. Pour the remainder of the sauce over the meatballs.

Cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4 hours (until inside temperature reaches 167 ° F).

Enjoy with your favorite pasta and sides.
