Sylvester Stallone's Meatballs
Mulberry Street

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.

Ingredients

  • 5 Pounds 22 percent-fat chopped beef
  • 5 slices white bread
  • 5 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

Directions

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. 

Meatball Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Meatball Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing. While less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
