Sweet and Spicy Philly Meatball Subs

This was definitely a change of pace around our house, but all the same it was delicious. 

Sweet and Spicy Philly Meatball Subs
                                                                                                             Makes approximately 4 servings
2 lb. ground meat
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp ginger (optional)
2 tsp. dried parsley
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano*
pinch of kosher salt
pinch of black pepper
1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 tbsp. teriyaki sauce
2 tbsp. mustard
1/4 cup breadcrumbs or matzoh meal

2 tbsp. olive oil
2 large tomatoes, diced
2 large onions, sliced into strips
1/2 cup barbecue sauce

sub sandwich roll

Preheat oven to 400° F. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and spray with non-stick spray, and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine the meatball ingredients and mix well. Shape golf ball sized meatballs and place them onto your prepared cookie sheet. Place in oven and bake for 17-20 minutes. 

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet. Saute the tomatoes and onions on medium-high heat for about five minutes. Add the BBQ sauce and let the onions and tomatoes cook down in sauce for another 4-5 minutes, until the sauce has thickened. When the meatballs are done, assemble the sub sandwiches. Place a few spoonfuls of the sauce on each side of the sandwich. Place 4-5 meatballs in the center, cover and enjoy!

* If all the spices scare you, you can skip them, except for the garlic powder, salt and pepper. But keep in mind that the spices balance out the sweetness of the barbecue sauce very well.
