Ingredients
 

  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 large yellow onion finely minced
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp caraway seeds
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes optional
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Instructions
 

  • In a large bowl, mix beef, bread crumbs, eggs, onion, garlic, salt, pepper, caraway seeds and red pepper flakes. Use your hands to combine everything.
  • Form meatballs by rolling 1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons of beef mixture into a ball with your palms. Have a parchment -lined baking pan ready to set all of the rolled meatballs onto before frying.
  • Heat olive oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. When oil is shimmering, work in batches to add the meatballs and cook on all sides until fully browned thru, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  • When done, remove the meatballs from the pan with a slotted spoon. Use meatballs right away, or freeze for future meals.

To Freeze:

  • Place cooked meatballs on baking sheet. Freeze uncovered for 1 hour. Remove meatballs from pan to plastic freezer bags or containers. Label and freeze for up to 3 months.

Notes

The frozen meatballs should be used within 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before using.
Recipe will make about 40 meatballs.
