Meatball Subs

I don't think I've ever eaten a meatball sub in my life, but everytime I see them I want to eat it! So, I came across this recipe & decided to make it. It was absolutely delicious! Everything about it...the sauce, the meat itself-just to die for! Seriously--go make these now.

Meatball Subs--adapted from Babble.com
Total Time: 45 Minutes
Serves 6-8 Sandwiches
Meatballs
  • 1 lb ground sirloin
  • 1/2 lb ground mild or hot Italian sausage
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasonings
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tablespoon grated onion (from the root end)
  • 1 large egg

Sauce
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 large bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped fine
  • 1 – 28 oz can whole Italian tomatoes
  • 1 – 6 oz can tomato paste
  • olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 – 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Additional ingredients
  • hoagie rolls
  • sliced mozzarella

Drizzle a large soup pot with olive oil. Add diced bell peppers and onions. Saute until softened and add garlic. Saute for 2 – 3 minutes more and add canned tomatoes and tomato paste. Use a potato masher to break up tomatoes. Add herbs and pepper flake if using. Season with salt to taste. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.
Combine all ingredients for meatballs in a large bowl and combine well with your hands. Form meat into meatballs and drop into sauce one at a time. As you continue to add meatballs, you’ll want to stir the ones that are cooking around to make room for the new ones. After all the meatballs are in the sauce, keep the heat on a simmer and place a lid on meatballs. Simmer, stirring occasionally for about 30 minutes, or until meatballs are done.
Preheat broiler. Serve meatballs on hoagie rolls and top with mozzarella. Place under broiler for just a few moments to melt cheese
