Albondigas Cubanas 

These albondigas Cubanas criollas are Cuban-style meatballs made with ground beef and pork.

The meatballs are pan-seared and then smothered in a deliciously spiced tomato sauce.


– ground beef – ground pork – cilantro – sazon – cumin – oregano – white bread crusts – egg – cheese – whole milk – oil – tomato sauce

Place the bread in a food processor and pulse until you have bread crumbs. 

Divide and shape the meat into about 10 meatballs. Use wet hands to form the meatballs, which will prevent the meat from sticking to your fingers. 

Heat some oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the meatballs and flip after 2-3 minutes. 

Add the onions to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes or until translucent. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant.

Tips and Recipe Variations

– Make sure to use fattier cuts of meat for best results. Ultra lean ground meat will make your meatballs tough and dry.
