Italian Stuffed Pork Meatball Sandwiches

    Servings: 4-5


    • 1 lb. ground pork
    • 2 eggs, whisked
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
    • 1 cup bread crumbs
    • 1 cup fresh mozzarella balls (about 12-15 of small size)
    • 1 28-oz. jar tomato sauce
    • salt and freshly cracked black pepper
    • sub-style buns


    1. In a large bowl combine whisked eggs, garlic powder and red pepper flakes. Add ground pork and breadcrumbs and mix together until evenly combined. Form the ground pork mixture into small meatballs, each about the size of a golf bal
    2. Press a mozzarella ball into the center of each meatball, taking care to reform the meatball around the cheese once it’s been added. (The cheese should not be visible.)
    3. Place the tomato sauce in the bottom of a slow cooker and the meatballs on top.
    4. Turn on the slow cooker and cook on high heat for six (6) hours or low heat for eight (8) hours. Carefully rotate the meatballs halfway through the cooking time to make sure they cook evenly.
    5. To serve, place three meatballs plus sauce in a sub bun.
