Bucket of B'alls Family Pack - Classic Beef Meatballs

From The Meatball Shop (
+ Free Shipping

Who would have thought that the humble meatball could become the darling of the New York dining scene? That’s exactly what happened in 2010, when longtime friends Daniel Holzman and Michael Chernow opened The Meatball Shop on the Lower East Side, serving up a menu comprised entirely of meatballs. It was an immediate smash that spawned a flood of imitators, and additional locations soon opened citywide.

Their top-selling classic meatball starts with a combination of natural Meyer’s Ranch Angus beef and Heritage pork, kicked up with a combination of Italian herbs and spices as well as ricotta to lighten the texture. The tomato sauce is a simple blend of California tomatoes, olive oil, onions, herbs and spices. When paired up, it’s the winning combination that put The Meatball Shop on the map.
