Yields: About 36 meatballs
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce, divided
  • 1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
  • ½ lb lean ground pork

Use hands to shape into 1-inch balls; place in slow cooker in single layer. When the bottom of the cooker is covered, add the second layer starting at the outer edge (where it cooks faster). Cover and cook on High 2 hours.
