  • 3 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 2 tablespoons diced onion
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons bread or cracker crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley optional
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 2 teaspoons oregano flakes


  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 teaspoon oregano flakes
  • 3 dashes Worcestershire sauce or Coconut Aminos
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 cup beef broth


  • For the meatballs:
  • Mix together all ingredients for the meatballs. Set aside.
  • Drizzle olive oil into the bottom of a large skillet or pan over medium-low heat.
  • Using a tablespoon scoop or spoon, form meatballs from the ground beef mixture. Drop into the heated skillet, turning occasionally to ensure that all sides of the meatball have been browned, about 7 minutes.
  • Add tomato sauce and oregano to the pan with the meatballs and reduce heat to a low simmer. Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • For the soup:
  • Add all ingredients to the pan with the meatballs. Simmer over low-medium heat for 15 minutes.
