Dr Oz: Turkey Meatballs Recipe


Dr Oz White Fish Tacos Recipe

Dr Oz learned how to make a White Fish Tacos Recipe with Marcus Samuelsson.

1 medium coarsely chopped carrot
2 coarsely chopped stalks celery
1 coarsely chopped medium onion,
3 lbs ground turkey meat
½ C golden raisins (plumped in warm water and drained)
½ C pine nuts (toasted in a dry skillet and cooled)
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp dried oregano
½ C fresh parsley, chopped
2 ½ C bread crumbs
1 Tbsp kosher salt

¼ C extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium chopped onion (enough for 1 ½ C)
2 tsp kosher salt (you can add more if you like)
2 fresh bay leaves (or 3 dried bay leaves)
½ tsp pepperoncino flakes
3 (28-oz) cans Italian plum tomatoes, crushed by hand
Preheat oven to 425°F.
Combine the carrot, celery, and onion in a food processor, pulsing to make a fine-textured paste or pestata
Scrape the pestata into a large bowl, and add the turkey meat, eggs, oregano, parsley, bread crumbs, pine nuts, raisins and salt
With hands, combine well.
Roll the meat into golf-ball-sized balls, and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper (You should get about 48 meatballs.)
Bake the meatballs until browned all over (18 to 20 minutes)


Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium heat
Toss in the onion and sauté until it turns transparent (2 to 3 minutes)
Add 1 teaspoon of the salt, bay leaves, and peperoncino
Let the peperoncino toast for a minute, then pour in the tomatoes
Slosh out the tomato cans and bowl with 4 C hot water, add to the pot, and stir
Stir in the remaining teaspoon of salt, and bring the sauce to a simmer while the meatballs finish baking (simmer sauce about 10 minutes more)
When the meatballs have finished baking, gently add them to the sauce and return to a simmer Simmer (shaking the pan periodically to move (but not break) the meatballs, until the sauce is thick and flavorful) About 1 ½ hours.
