World Wide Meatballs
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. Ground meats of all varieties combined with a particular sauce of the area are probably one of the most international of all recipes. Use beef, lamb, pork, sausage, poultry, or combinations to make it "yours" to share. Use catsup, salsa, tamari, hot sauce, or spaghetti sauce, etc. to give it just the right flavor!
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef, or your choice of ground meat
Crumble meat into a batter bowl and set aside. In food processor with steel chopping blade in place, combine the bread, flour, green pepper, onion, garlic and herbs. Pulse to chop finely. Add the catsup and salt. Pour over the meat and mix thoroughly. Shape into meat balls and dredge with the flour so that they are not sticky. Arrange on a glass or ceramic plate that will fit into your microwave. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover with a piece of waxed paper or a few large leaves of romaine, kale, etc. Cook in microwave about 3 minutes for one plate. If not done, continue with 1-2 minutes. In meantime, arrange pasta, or bread, or tortillas, or cooked vegetables, or sauerkraut, or baby greens over a beautiful serving platter. Arrange the cooked meatballs on top and serve!
