Nick Stellino’s Italian Meatballs


If you’ve followed me for a while, you know I have celebrity chef crushes: Nigella Lawson, Ming Tsai, Michael Symon…and Nick Stellino

These are more than just following their recipes, it’s about enjoying their story-telling, their cooking style, their outlook on life. Right now, I’m enjoying a story a day from Nick Stellino, via his Storyteller in the Kitchen series.

Here’s the link to the meatball recipe. I believe you can easily use the electric pressure cooker (instant pot, etc) for this. Just use the saute setting first to bring it to a boil, then reduce to the slow cooker high setting for about 2 hours, or until the meatballs are cooked through to the center.  I would not use the pressure cooking setting – the sauce will burn and the meatballs will fall apart.
