Six meatballs sitting in a dark brown sauce with melted mozzarella cheese on top.

Preheat the over to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a medium bowl, add your parsley, ground beef, steak rub, garlic powder, onion powder, and minced garlic. Wearing gloves, mix the meat and seasonings together well.

Next, take a large baking pan and lay out your mozzarella balls. Take a palm full of meat mixture and place the mozzarella ball in the center. Roll the meat into a ball around the mozzarella until it is completely covered. Continue until all 10 mozzarella balls are wrapped up in your meat mix.

Cook in the oven for 25-30 minutes. Until cooked through. Once cooked, remove from the over and place in a deep dish. Drizzle a hearty helping of Kentucky Bourbon over your meatballs and enjoy!
