Sylvester Stallone's Meatballs
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.
- 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
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.
