Makes 20-25 meatballs
These are a must try, and yes, I made them in the crock pot but you can also bake these in the oven as well. Here’s the recipe:

2lbs grassfed ground beef
1lb of pork sausage
chopped celery, onions, and carrots
1/2 cup almond meal
lots of dried oregano, garlic powder, cracked black pepper, and a little cayenne
small drizzle of raw honey
Form into large meatballs and cover bottom of crock pot, you might have to stack them depending on the size of your crock pot.
For the sauce mix:
1 16 oz can of diced tomatoes
1 can of tomatoe paste
a large handfull of torn fresh basil
5-6 coarsely chopped garlic cloves
a couple pinches of sea salt

Cover meatballs with tomato sauce and cook all day on low. These were even better the next day for lunch!!
