Meatballs and "The World's Best Broccoli!"

Meatballs: Free-range, grass fed beef (1lb) mixed with 1-2 Tbs olive oil, 1 large egg, crushed/finely chopped fresh garlic (2 cloves), finely chopped onion (1/4-1/3 cup), Italian seasoning, and freshly chopped oregano. Mix well with hands and roll into 1.5-2 inch (diameter) meatballs. Heat on all sides, until cooked through in a pan with melted butter.

World's Best Broccoli: This is a recipe that was shared with me and so I am sharing it here and I have to say, it is pretty good! Place fresh broccoli florets on a cookie sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, top with crushed/finely chopped garlic cloves (2-4 cloves, we used 3), salt and ground pepper to season. Bake in oven at 400 degrees F for about 15-25 minutes. It's done when the tips of the broccoli appear brownish.


PS: Leftover meatballs make a great addition to breakfast the next morning! :-)


  1. This is by far the world's BEST broccoli. I googled a recipe that is almost identical under "Blasted Broccoli"... Delish!!

  2. I made these meatballs last night and they were great! I work with La Cense Beef which sells 100 percent grass fed beef and have recently made the switch to Grass Fed Beef myself. So I was pleasantly surprised to see you recipe included it. I think that it bring a great flavor to the meatballs and also a lot healthier that grain fed beef that is commonly sold in most grocery stores. It is lower in fat and calories and high in heart healthy omega 3 acids.
