Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs with Sriracha!

(Enjoy my adaption of BuzzFeed’s, Tasty, Mozzarella Stuffed Meatballs. I added in a few improvements to the recipe such as swapping the parmesan cheese for the delicious pecorino cheese and adding some other charismatic flavors to the sauce!)

Ingredients 

1 pound ground beef
1 pound hot Italian sausage
1/2 tsp garlic powder or garlic salt
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 cup bread crumbs
1/4 cup pecorino
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped parsley
2 jars of tomato sauce
​Basil Leaves
Sriracha Sauce
Crushed Garlic

Directions

Cut low moisture mozzarella cheese into medium sized cubes. Chill in refrigerator while preparing the meat mixture. Mix in a bowl, beef, sausage, garlic powder, salt, pepper, bread crumbs, pecorino, eggs, milk, and parsley. Combine mixture and massage thoroughly with hands. Roll golf ball sized balls with the meat mixture. Squish mozzarella cube into the center and pull the edges of the meat ball around it until it’s a new ball again.
Arrange meatballs in slow cooker. Layer the first batch on the bottom with tomato sauce, extra mozzarella or pecorino, lay the second layer of meatballs and repeat. On the final layer, cover with sauce, cheese, and add a hefty drizzle of Sriracha sauce, a couple splashes of crushed  garlic, and a couple basil leaves to get that unique sauce flavor. Cook on high for 2 to 2.5 hours or cook on low for 5 to 6 hours. This recipe makes about 20 meatballs.
