P2 Recipe- Meatballs and Fresh Tomato Sauce

Standard

Meatballs and Fresh Tomato Sauce

Meatballs:
100g Lean Ground Beef (I use 96/4)
1 Grissini, pulverised (I use a food processor)
1-2 Tbl Cold Water
Pinch Onion Powder
Pinch Dehydrated Chopped Garlic or Garlic Powder
S&P to taste
 
Sauce:
3 Campari Tomatoes, Diced
1/4c Water
2-3 dashes italian seasoning
Pinch Onion Powder
Pinch Dehydrated Chopped Garlic or Garlic Powder
Pinch Red Pepper Flake
S&P to taste
1-2 drops Clear Stevia

1) Pre-heat non-stick pan over med-high heat.

2) Dump Grissini, water and seasonings for meatballs into a small bowl and allow to soak for about a minute.

3) Crumble meat into the crumb/seasoning mixture and gently mix with fingers just until combined. (Mixture should be loose and wet, add more cold water as needed for proper texture)

4) Loosely roll small meatballs and drop into pan until all meat is in the pan browning.

5) Dice all tomatoes while watching meatballs and turning until browned evenly on all sides.

6) Remove meatballs to side container.

7) Add all sauce ingredients to the same pan.

8) Allow tomatoes and spices to cook for 3-5minutes.

9) Use a potato master or back of spatula to break up tomatoes and add meatballs back to sauce, cooking covered for an additional 10-15minutes.

This is a log of my weight loss journey on HCG. I started this journey the heaviest I’ve ever been… so much so that my weight wouldn’t even register on a Weight Watchers scale. After my 2 days of loading I hit a high of 335.8lbs. I have more than 160lbs to lose to reach my goal and it will be a long time coming. Please feel free to offer encouragement and tips to help me stay motivated as I lose my way to 175! I hope this page will serve as an encouragement to others who are also on their own weight loss journey. God Bless you in your endeavors!
