Sous Vide Spaghetti and Meatballs

Cook your meatballs and sauce all in the same bag! All the flavors harmonize like they’ve been simmering all day.

  • 1 lb. Ground Pork
  • 1 lb. Ground Beef
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 cup Oatmeal
  • 1 medium Yellow Onion
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • 2 Sprigs of Fresh Oregano
  • 1 can San Marzano Stewed Tomatoes
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Spaghetti
  • Fresh Parmesan

Step 1

Set your Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 140°F/60°C.

Step 2

Finely mince the onion and garlic. De-stem the fresh oregano and chop. Lastly, empty the tomatoes into a bowl and mash them with a potato masher until they’re well mixed into the can juices.

Step 3

Combine pork, beef, egg, oatmeal, half the onion, half the garlic, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly with hands until well combined.

Step 4

Use an ice cream scoop or your hands to make 8-9 meatballs. Each should be around 2-inches across.

Step 5

Heat a large saucepan over high heat and add some olive oil. Once the pan is piping hot, drop your meatballs in and sear on all sides. Set the meatballs aside.

Step 6

Drain the majority of the excess fat from the pan and add the remaining onion. Scrape the fond from the pan as you cook the onion until it’s translucent (use a little vegetable broth as needed to loosen the fond). Next stir in the garlic and the mashed San Marzano tomatoes and all the juices from the can. Salt & pepper to taste. Mix well and let simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and let cool for five minutes.

Step 7

Combine meatballs and sauce into a 1-gallon vacuum sealer bag and seal.

Step 8

Place bag in the water bath and set timer for 2 hours.

Step 9

15 Minutes or so before the timer goes off, boil some water and add the spaghetti. Drain the spaghetti once cooked and add the sauce and meatballs, then enjoy!
