Sylvester Stallone's Meatballs

Mulberry Street


  • 5 Pounds  22 percent-fat chopped beef
  • slices white bread
  • eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon  salt
  • 1 Teaspoon  pepper
  • 1 Cup  Parmesan cheese
  • 1 Cup  Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 Teaspoon  garlic powder
  •   Extra-virgin olive oil, as needed
  •   Marinara sauce, for serving

Los Angeles' favorite pizza joint, Mulberry Street Pizzeria, serves up more than just a good New York-style pizza. Created by founder Richie Palmer and his good friend Sly Stallone, this meatball recipe is simple but authentic in flavor. To replicate the famous recipe, though, it's recommended to use Mulberry Street's world-famous marinara sauce. 


Mix together the beef, white bread, eggs, salt, pepper, and Parmesan cheese. Blend the breadcrumbs and garlic powder into the meat mixture.

Heat the extra-virgin olive oil in frying pan on low flame. Fry the meatballs, rotate often until golden brown on all sides. Serve with marinara sauce.
