How to Make Saucey Meatballs
1Tear the bread into small pieces and place in a medium bowl. Pour milk over the bread to just coat it. Set aside.
2In a large sauce pan, combine all of the sauce ingredients. Heat over a medium heat. Once the sauce begins to bubble slightly, reduce heat to low.
3Combine the beef, red pepper, onion and garlic in a large bowl.
Squeeze out 90% of the milk from the bread and transfer to beef bowl. Stir/mash to combine.
Form 1-2 inch in diameter meatballs.
4Heat a medium to large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and place 6-8 meatballs in the pan. Brown the meatballs on all sides, then transfer to sauce. Repeat with remaining balls.
5Once all the balls are in the sauce, let them cook on low for up to 30 minutes, gently stirring occasionally.
6Serve with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
NOTE: You may substitute the sugar and cream with Coconut milk as well for a slightly healthier version.
