Prep
Cook
Serves 4people
Ingredients
extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing
3
oz sliced pepperoni
1
lb ground beef chuck
1/2
cup panko breadcrumbs
1
large egg
1
tsp sweet paprika
kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
1
14 -ounce jar roasted red peppers or piquillo peppers, drained
2
tbsp tomato paste
2
cups low-sodium chicken broth
Directions
1.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and brush a baking sheet with olive oil. Pulse the pepperoni in a food processor until ground; transfer to a medium bowl (no need to rinse out the food processor). Add the beef, panko, egg, paprika, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper to the bowl; mix with your hands until combined. Form into 20 golf ball-size meatballs and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Bake, turning halfway through, until browned, about 12 minutes.
2.
Meanwhile, add the roasted red peppers and tomato paste to the food processor and puree until smooth. Transfer to a large skillet along with the chicken broth and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes; season with salt and pepper.
3.
Transfer the meatballs to the sauce and continue to cook, gently stirring to coat, until the meatballs are tender, about 10 more minutes. Divide the meatballs and sauce among bowls.
