I am making meatballs tomorrow, something I have never done before. The recipe I am using says it makes 10 servings, but only calls for 1 lb of ground beef. Since I rarely cook meat, I have no sense of size or portion. However, I just bought the beef tonight and 1 lb seems like a pretty small amount, and I am skeptical that it will really be enough for 10 servings (unless a serving is only one meatball).
Long story short...how many people can I reasonably expect to feed with 1 lb of beef? Should I buy more if I plan to feed 5 people? I'll also be serving some pasta and vegetables on the side.
