Pan Fried Meatballs

Easy pan fried meatballs are made with just a few simple ingredients and cook quickly in a single skillet on the stove. This fried meatball recipe can also be frozen for easy meal prep.

How long does it take to make easy skillet meatballs?

For smaller meatballs it will take about 8 minutes for them to cook on the stove. If you roll larger meatballs you will need to increase the cooking time.

How to keep meatballs from sticking to the pan?

To prevent meatballs from sticking to the pan use a non stick pan. If not using a non stick pan, use a more generous amount of oil and don’t over heat the pan. You want at least ¼ of an inch of oil in the pan and work with a medium-high heat. If you cook the meatballs in batches, you may need to add additional oil to the pan.

Can I add raw meatballs to sauce?

Meatballs can cook through in sauce as long as the sauce is kept at a simmer until the meatballs are fully cooked.

How do you tell if meatballs are cooked?

A fully cooked meatball will no longer be pink inside and the juices should run clear. When checked with a meat thermometer the internal temperature should register 165 degrees F.
