Cooking Beef with Eric - Meatballs with a Chocolate Tomato Sauce
RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA) - What??? Chocolate and tomato together? You bet! Here’s a super easy recipe for meatballs in a chocolate tomato sauce.
First, use some pre-made meatballs you can get in the freezer section of your grocery store. Thaw, then place in a slow cooker.
For the sauce, combine a quarter cup of high quality melted dark chocolate (at least 85%) or dark chocolate chips (can do this in the microwave) with a 28-ounce can of crushed tomatoes, and a half can of tomato paste. Add a teaspoon of sea or kosher salt.
Pour this sauce over the meatballs, stir to combine and cook in the slow cooker for 4 hours on low, or 2 hours on high, until meatballs are thoroughly coated in a the rich thick sauce.
These meatballs would best be served on mashed potatoes or riced cauliflower, or alone as a cocktail party snack.
