Elevate Your Pasta Night with Low Sodium Meatballs

If you’re searching for a way to take your pasta night to new heights, these low sodium meatballs are the answer. My husband couldn’t stop raving about how delicious they were, giving them a full 10/10 rating! These meatballs have become a staple in our monthly dinner rotation.

To create these delectable meatballs, I combined lean ground beef (preferably 95% lean ground sirloin), low sodium Panko breadcrumbs, fresh garlic, and a blend of herbs and spices. To enhance the flavor, I added low sodium Worcestershire sauce, which brings a tangy umami taste to the dish. After simmering them in a salt-free tomato sauce for an hour, they are ready to be enjoyed with spaghetti and low sodium garlic bread.

The Ingredients for Low Salt Meatballs

  • Lean Ground Beef: Opt for the leanest beef possible, such as ground sirloin.
  • Eggs: Use cage-free or free-range eggs if available, supporting animal welfare when possible.
  • Low sodium Panko breadcrumbs: Look for seasoned breadcrumbs with low sodium content.
  • Fresh Garlic
  • Fresh Parsley
  • Low Sodium Worcestershire Sauce: Add a tangy umami flavor with only 45mg sodium per serving.
  • Italian Seasoning Blend: Opt for a no-salt-added variety.
  • Onion Powder: Enhances the savory flavor.
  • Brown Sugar
  • Chili Flakes (optional): Add a touch of heat if desired.

Making Meatballs Without Salt

Here’s a simple step-by-step guide to making delicious salt-free meatballs:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients and mix thoroughly using a wooden spoon or your hands.
  2. Take about 2 tablespoons of the mixture, roll it into a ball, and place it on a plate. Repeat until all the meatballs are formed.
  3. To cook in sauce, bring a pot of low sodium tomato sauce to a simmer. Submerge the meatballs in the sauce and cook on low heat for an hour until they are cooked through.
  4. Alternatively, you can bake the meatballs by preheating the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Arrange the meatballs on a sheet pan and bake for 20-25 minutes until cooked through. Serve with sauce or enjoy with pasta.
