    cup ketchup, plus 2 tablespoons

  • 1

    tablespoon brown sugar

  • 1/2

    cup chopped celery

  • 1/2

    cup chopped onion

  • 1/2

    cup chopped carrots

  • 2

    garlic cloves, chopped

  • 1

    cup parsley, chopped, plus more for serving

  • 3/4

    cup panko bread crumbs

  • 1/4

    cup Parmesan, freshly grated

  • kosher salt to taste

  • freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1

  • 1-pound ground beef

  • 1/2-pound ground pork

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup ketchup with brown sugar. Set aside. In the bowl of a food processor, add celery, onion, carrots, and garlic. Pulse 4 to 5 times, then add 3/4 cup parsley and pulse until combined, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. In a large mixing bowl, combine vegetables with bread crumbs, cheese, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, egg, and remaining 2 tablespoons ketchup. Mix until well combined, then add beef and pork. Mix together by hand until just combined. Don't over mix to maintain tender meatballs. Using your hands, form 1 1/2-inch meatballs and place in an oven-proof dish or skillet so that meatballs are touching. Brush meatballs with the ketchup glaze and bake until browned, about 20 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.
