Story City Locker Cy Meatballs and Sauce

This is a recipe we came up with for the Story City Locker to show-off their grassfed beef at Wheatsfield's grand reopening. Needless to say, they were gone pretty quick! You can use Cy Salt, but Whassamatterhorn, Das Bigfoot, and Roxy Taco would work great, too.

1 lb ground grassfed beef
2.5 tsp Cy Salt (might want to try 2, fry one and test for seasoning)
1/2 finely chopped onion
1 egg
Bread crumbs if it's too loose
1/4 c parm cheese if you want
Mix it all up. You can fry them in olive oil or bake them at 400 for 15 minutes.

You could serve them in any jarred spaghetti sauce, or ...
1 finely chopped onion
2 finely chopped garlic cloves
A little oil
1 28 can whole tomatoes
Splash red wine
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp Cy Salt
Sauté the onion and garlic in a pressure cooker till they're soft. Add the tomatoes w juice, break 'em down, add the spices & wine. Put the pressure cooker lid on, turn the cooker to high, cook at full pressure for 3 minutes. You can also cook it in a regular pot on low.

CUSTOMER SHARE: Daniel's Meatballs with Peter Rabbit & Big Bangkok

Our mad scientist customer Daniel in Des Moines made two batches: one with Peter Rabbit and one with Big Bangkok—plus fresh sage from his garden. I bet those flavors would go good with pork meatballs, or even tofu.
