  2. Combine all meatball ingredients except the mozzarella in a large bowl. Using your hands, mix until fully combined.
  3. Take a golf ball-sized piece of the ground beef mixture and place a piece of mozzarella in the middle. Press meat around the piece of cheese, fully enclosing it. Repeat until all meat is used.
  4. Place meatballs in a slow cooker and submerge in sauce.
  5. Cover and cook on high for 2-2½ hours, or until meat is fully cooked.
  6. Serve by itself or over pasta.
  7. Enjoy!
