  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1 cup zucchini grated (or 1 med zucchini)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon all purpose seasoning (I used McCormick and Garlic and Herb)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream


  • Crumble ground meat into a large bowl
  • Using a medium grater, shred zucchini until you have about 1 packed cup full (don’t dry or remove water)
  • Add grated zucchini to the bowl along with egg, seasoning, and salt
  • Mix with hands until just combined
  • Melt butter in a large heavy bottomed or cast iron skillet
  • Roll meat into 18 equal sized balls and place in skillet
  • Cook for about 3-5 minutes then flip and cook another 3-5 minutes until lightly browned
  • Whisk together broth, mustard, and cream
  • Pour into skillet with meatballs and bring to a hard simmer for 5-10 minutes until meatballs are cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly 


  1. Use an ice cream scooper to make measuring out equal sized meatballs easy and so that meatballs will cook evenly
  2. Only mix meat until everything is just combined. Overworking the meat will cause your meatballs to become tough
1 serving = 3 meatballs
