Cumin Spiced Meatballs in Rich Tomato Sauce

These Cumin Spiced Meatballs in Rich Tomato Sauce make perfect use of my favorite warming spice: cumin! I add cumin to everything. I love it! These slow cooker meatballs are one of my favorite comfort foods – cooked long and slow in a rich and delicious tomato sauce.

Start by mixing the ingredients for the meatballs. Leave the mixture to rest for a few minutes before shaping the meatballs. As the meat mixture rests, place the sauce ingredients in the insert of a slow cooker. Lay the meatballs on top of the sauce and cook for 6-7 hours on low. Serve with rice, mashed potatoes or French fries and enjoy!
